Nyquist waives right to in-person hearing, will phone in Wednesday
Gustav Nyquist won't be pleading his case in-person.
A player is offered an in-person hearing when the league determines that he might be suspended for six games or more. Turning down the face-to-face session doesn't mean he won't still be banned for that length of time.
Under league rules, a player offered an in-person hearing is also suspended until the hearing takes place, but the Red Wings don't play again until Wednesday night against the St. Louis Blues.
