Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith will have a disciplinary hearing with the NHL over his high-stick to the face of Kings forward Jeff Carter last night in Los Angeles.

The hearing will take place at 1:30 pm ET.

Game 4 of the Western Conference finals goes tomorrow in Los Angeles.

Keith was given a double-minor for high sticking Carter:
