New Jersey Devils defenseman Dalton Prout will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday for interference against Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas.

The incident occurred 7:59 into the second period of a 3-0 Philadelphia win at Wells Fargo Center on Saturday. Gudas sustained an upper-body injury on the hit and did not play in the third period after returning for one shift late in the second.

Prout was called for interference on the play and given a game misconduct. He and Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds each also received a fighting major at 7:59.

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