Montreal Canadiens forward Cedric Paquette will have a hearing Monday to answer for his hit on Anaheim Ducks phenom Trevor Zegras on Sunday night.

Paquette received a five-minute major and game misconduct after boarding Zegras in the first period of the Ducks' 4-2 win.

Zegras left the game but later returned. The 2019 ninth overall pick had recorded five points in nine contests entering Sunday.

Paquette has one prior suspension in his nine-year career - a boarding hit on Torey Krug in 2017.
