Boston Bruins winger Brad Marchand will have a hearing for his "dangerous trip" on Detroit Red Wings defender Niklas Kronwall, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced Wednesday.

Marchand looked to intentionally kick the right leg out from underneath Kronwall as he skated behind the defenseman Tuesday night.

He was not penalized on the play.

Marchand has a lengthy suspension history, which likely factored into the NHL's decision to host an official review. There have been several slew-footing incidents over the last week that have gone unpunished.

He was last suspended 13 months ago for clipping Ottawa's Mark Borowiecki.

If there is a ban handed down, it's not expected to affect his participation at the upcoming NHL All-Star Game, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
