Columbus forward Derek MacKenzie will have a phone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety later this afternoon concerning the hit that injured Phoenix defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson last night at Jobing.com Arena.
There was no penalty on the play, but the league will apparently consider supplemental discipline for boarding.
If MacKenzie is suspended, it will be the eighth suspension for boarding this season, per TSN’s list.
