On Friday, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety confirmed that Komarov will have a hearing for the hit.
ESPN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun notes that it will be a phone hearing, which usually means that the player will receive a suspension of five games or less.
Komarov has never been suspended, but that could change in the very near future.
The hearing is scheduled for 1:30 pm ET.
McDonagh left the game and did not return.
It’s a tough blow for the player and his team.
McDonagh missed four games between Feb. 8 and Feb. 14 because of a concussion he suffered against the Flyers on Feb. 6.
