Maple Leafs' Kadri to have hearing Thursday
Toronto center Nazem Kadri will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for a hit on Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom.

Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Thursday afternoon for a hit on Minnesota Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom Wednesday night at Xcel Energy Center.

At 7:07 of the first period, Kadri hit Backstrom while driving to the net. Backstrom initially remained in the game after being attended to on the ice, but was replaced by Josh Harding at 10:31 of the first period and did not return.

Kadri received a two-minute minor for goaltender interference on the play.

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

Minnesota won the game, 2-1, in a shootout.
