Johan Larsson will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Saturday.
The Arizona Coyotes forward is facing discipline for an illegal check to the head of St. Louis Blues forward Zach Sanford.
The incident occurred at 5:11 of the third period during Arizona’s 4-1 loss at Gila River Arena on Friday. Larsson received a minor penalty for an illegal check to the head at 6:08. Sanford completed the shift and the remainder of the game.
The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.
