NHL.com @NHL

Vancouver Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows will have a phone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday.

Burrows checked Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin at 8:28 of the second period of a game Thursday at Rogers Arena. No penalty was called on the play. Emelin missed the remainder of the second period but returned for the third.

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