Avs defenseman Barrie will have hearing for charge on Despres

Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie will have a disciplinary hearing for his charge on Ducks blueliner Simon Depres.

The incident took place in the second period of Friday’s 3-0 win over Anaheim.

As you can tell in the video above, not only did Barrie leap into Despres but he also got him with a shoulder to the head. Despres was forced to leave the game soon after the collision.

After Saturday’s practice, head coach Bruce Boudreau shed some light on Despre’s upper-body injury.

In what’s believed to be a corresponding move, the Ducks have recalled defensemen Korbinian Holzer and Shea Theodore from AHL San Diego.
