Hours after Leafs forward David Clarkson was suspended 10 games Monday, the NHL's department of player safety announced it would have a telephone hearing with Phil Kessel Tuesday to assess a slashing incident he was involved in during the third-period brawl in Toronto's 5-2 win.
Sabres winger John Scott went after Kessel, who turned and swung his stick on his opponent. At 10:01 of the third period, the Leafs sniper was given a match penalty.
For his actions, Scott was handed a fighting major, an instigating minor, to go along with a 10-minute and game misconduct.
The Leafs came out on top on the scoreboard with a 5-3 win.
