Toronto Maple Leafs right wing Carter Ashton will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday for a hit on Calgary Flames defenseman Derek Smith on Tuesday night at Scotiabank Saddledome.

At 16:56 of the second period, Ashton received a two-minute boarding penalty on the play as well as a five-minute fighting major for an altercation that ensued with Flames defenseman Shane O'Brien. Smith remained in the game after the hit.

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

Toronto won the game, 4-2.

Quote of the Day

You get more opportunity, and at the end of the day those are the times you've got to step up and show what you're made of. Together as a team, that's how you win games. I think we stuck together. That's kind of our philosophy here. We have good leadership and good guys to lean on.
