Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook will have a phone hearing Sunday for his hit on St. Louis Blues forward David Backes in Game 2 of their Western Conference First Round series on Saturday.
Seabrook received a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct at 15:09 of the third period for his hit on Backes, who was helped off the ice and was unable to return to the game. The Blues scored the tying goal with Seabrook in the penalty box and won the game 4-3 in overtime.
The following grounds for the proposed supplemental discipline are being considered: interference/charging. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to these infractions accordingly upon further review.
