Garbutt to have hearing for kneeing Hall

3 Comments

As of this morning, there was no hearing scheduled for Ryan Garbutt. But that was then. From the NHL’s Department of Player Safety, this is now:

Here’s the incident, in case you missed it:

Hall wasn’t injured on the play, and remained in the game.

But Garbutt has a history. Last season, he was fined for a spear on Ducks forward Corey Perry and, during the lockout-shortened ’13 campaign, he was suspended five games for a hit on Dustin Penner.

The Stars’ next game is Friday versus Minnesota.
