The NHL will hold a hearing with Philadelphia Flyers
forward Daniel Carcillo
at 3 p.m. ET Thursday to discuss an incident that took place during the Flyers' Game 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins
, 4-1, Wednesday night.
The NHL spoke with all coaches and general managers prior to the start of the playoffs informing them there would be no "message sending" during the latter stages of games. Carcillo got involved with the Penguins' Max Talbot near the end of the game.
The Flyers acquired Carcillo, 24, at the trade deadline in exchange for Scottie Upshall
and a 2011 second round draft pick. He scored 3 goals and 11 assists in 74 games this season, picking up 254 penalty minutes.
