St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre is scheduled for an in-person sitdown at the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday.
He accepted the invitation under a collective bargaining agreement provisions that affords players the opportunity for a face-to-face hearing for suspensions that might exceed five games.
Lapierre must sit out pending the hearing.
Under review is the major penalty for checking San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle behind the play in Tuesday's game at Scottrade Center. The hit, which took Boyle off the ice and into a St. Louis hospital, occurred at 5:22 of the first period wasn't his only infraction. He was given a game misconduct and a fighting major for a separate altercation.
