Clowe suspended pending in-person hearing Monday

NHL.com @NHL

San Jose Sharks forward Ryane Clowe faces a supplementary discipline hearing Monday for an incident from a game Friday night against the Chicago Blackhawks. He is suspended pending the outcome of the hearing.

He has been offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing in the League office, which means his suspension can exceed five games, per provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Clowe was assessed a minor for roughing and a game misconduct for leaving the players' bench to start an altercation (Rule 70.6).

If it is determined he left the bench illegally, he is assessed an automatic 10-game suspension without pay and his club is fined $10,000. If he left the bench on a legal line change, he still is subject to Supplemental Discipline for doing so and then proceeding directly to start an altercation (Rule 70.2).

Chicago won the game, 2-1.
