Report: Brad Marchand to have hearing Monday over hit on Sami Salo

Bruins forward Brad Marchand [1] will have a phone hearing Monday with NHL [2] disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan, the Boston Globe reported Sunday.

Marchand was given a five-minute clipping major and a game misconduct for his hit on Canucks defenseman Sami Salo in the second period of Saturday’s 4-3 loss to Vancouver. Salo will not play Sunday against the Panthers after waking up with a headache.

Marchand, a repeat offender, was suspended for two games last season for elbowing R.J. Umberger. He was also given a $2,500 fine this season for slew-footing Matt Niskanen.
