Ference to meet with league over elbowing incident

May 2, 2013, 10:14 AM EST

The elbow delivered by Boston defenseman Andrew Ference to Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski (read about it here) didn’t go unnoticed by the NHL.

According to Sportsnet’s John Shannon, Ference will have a 2 p.m. ET meeting with NHL Player Safety. Ference’s elbow caught Grabovski during the first period of last night’s 4-1 win by Boston. No penalty was called on the play.

In case you missed it, here’s video of the play.

Playoff suspensions are always a different beast than what goes down in the regular season because playoff games carry a lot more weight. Does Ference see any time off from this?
