The Phoenix Coyotes centre will have a hearing with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety Monday for a charging incident on Edmonton Oilers blue-liner Jeff Petry.
The infraction occurred at 13:42 of the first period of Phoenix's 5-4 victory when Petry was levelled into the boards by Hanzal after playing the puck.
Petry remained in the game while Hanzal received a two-minute penalty for charging.
Hanzal, who stands 6'6 and weighs 230 pounds, is a 26-year-old native of the Czech Republic. He's enjoyed a hot start to the 2013-14 campaign with 11 points (five goals, six assists) in 12 games so far.
Petry, a six-foot-three, 195-pound native of Ann Arbor, Mich., has two goals and two assists this year to go along with eight penalty minutes in 12 games.Suggest a correction
