Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov will have a phone hearing on February 16 with the NHL Department of Player Safety for clipping Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin in a game at American Airlines Center on Friday.
Kulikov waived his right to an in-person hearing. He had been offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.
Kulikov was given a major penalty and game misconduct for clipping Seguin at 13:05 of the third period. Seguin left the game and did not return. The Stars placed Seguin on injured reserve with a lower-body injury Saturday morning.
The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: clipping. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.
Dallas won the game, 2-0.
