Flyers tough guy forward Brayden Schenn is getting called on the NHL carpet today.
Schenn delivered a controversial hit that shook up Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie in game 6.
Oshie was able to return to the contest, which the Capitals ultimately won 1-0 to eliminate the Flyers.
One would think that might help Schenn’s cause a bit, but either way, the league announced a hearing will take place today.
The NHL didn’t specify if it would be done over the telephone or in person, which would affect the ceiling for any sort of punishment.
We don’t often see supplemental discipline handed out to players who’ve seen their teams get bounced from the playoffs, so this could be especially interesting to watch.
Schenn is scheduled to be a restricted free agent this summer.
