Phoenix Coyotes center Martin Hanzal will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Monday for a hit on Edmonton Oilers defenseman Jeff Petry on Saturday night at Jobing.com Arena.

At 13:42 of the first period, Hanzal checked Petry against the boards in the Edmonton end after Petry had moved the puck. Hanzal received a two-minute minor for charging on the play.

Petry was shaken up on the play but remained in the game.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: charging. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

Phoenix won the game, 5-4.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
