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
