Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk will have a hearing Thursday for unsportsmanlike conduct Wednesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced.

The incident in question is a sneaky spear delivered from the bench to Maple Leafs forward Matt Martin.

Tkachuk was suspended one game in November for unsportsmanlike conduct after tapping the leg of Detroit's Luke Witkowski with his stick as Witkowski was skating off the ice following an ejection.

Calgary's next game is Thursday in Montreal, so a quick decision is expected.
