Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Tuesday for charging/illegal check to the head of Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie.

The play occurred in the second period of Game 6 of their Eastern Conference First Round series in Philadelphia on Sunday. Schenn hit Oshie into the glass in the Flyers zone. Oshie left the game but returned for the start of the third period.

Schenn did not receive a penalty.

The Capitals defeated the Flyers 1-0 to win the series 4-2. They will play the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round.

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