Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri will have a hearing Friday for boarding/charging Boston's Tommy Wingels during Thursday's Game 1 loss to the Bruins, the NHL announced.

The incident occurred in the third period, and Kadri was assessed a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct.

Kadri later said he was already committed to the hit before Wingels dropped to the ice, and did not intend hit him when he was down.

Wingels did not return to the game, and no update was offered with regards to his status.

Kadri would be the second player to be suspended already this postseason, as Los Angeles' Drew Doughty will sit one game against Vegas for a high hit.

Game 2 of Toronto's series is set for Saturday in Boston, so expect a ruling before then.
