Columbus Blue Jackets forward Blake Comeau will face a telephone hearing for a boarding hit on Detroit Red Wings blueliner Brendan Smith from Tuesday’s 4-1 victory for Columbus.

Sportsnet provides video of that check:

Comeau received a two-minute penalty for boarding and another minor for diving after Smith cross-checked him. Comeau, 28, hasn’t been suspended by the league in his NHL career so far.
