Canucks' Hansen has a hearing with NHL at 3:30 pm ET today— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 20, 2013
For those of you who have asked, Hansen's is a phone hearing. That means max suspension is 5 games.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) February 20, 2013
Hossa had to be helped off the ice Tuesday after Vancouver winger Jannik Hansen hit him in the back of the head with his left forearm. He did not return.
We can't assume anything yet, but this is scary stuff considering Hossa suffered a nasty concussion in last season's playoffs and wasn't cleared to play again until December. Hossa only ended up skating 13:11 in the game, though he did score two goals before departing.
