Report: Flyers GM expects Jody Shelley to be suspended for hit on Adam McQuaid

According to a tweet from TSN’s Bob McKenzie [1], the NHL [2] has scheduled a disciplinary hearing for Monday in regard to Flyers forward Jody Shelley‘s hit on Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. The play, in which Shelley received a boarding major and game misconduct, occurred in the second period of the Flyers’ 2-1 overtime win. The players were racing for an iced puck when Shelley pushed McQuaid, who went head-first into the boards and had the wind knocked out of him.

Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia’s Tim Panaccio tweeted Sunday [3] that Flyers general managerĀ Paul Holmgren expects Shelley to be suspended for one game.
