Tom Wilson will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday.
The Washington Capitals forward is facing discipline for an illegal check to the head of Pittsburgh Penguins forward Zach Aston-Reese in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Second Round.
The incident occurred 9:47 into the second period. Wilson was not penalized. Aston-Reese left the game, and the Penguins said he has a broken jaw and a concussion and will be out for the rest of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Wilson assisted on the tying goal in Washington's 4-3 win that gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.
Game 4 is at Pittsburgh on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVAS).
