The NHL is conducting disciplinary hearings today after a pair of incidents that occurred during Tuesday's games.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke will have a telephone hearing with the league after he hit Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman Fedor Tyutin from behind. The incident occurred during the first period of their game in Pittsburgh.

New Jersey Devils defenceman Anton Volchenkov is also having a telephone hearing for his elbow to the head of Carolina Hurricanes forward Zack Boychuk. 

Cooke was assessed a five-minute major penalty for charging and subsequently picked up a second major for fighting Derick Brassard in the ensuing scrum. 

He did not receive a game misconduct for either offence.

No stranger to controversy, Cooke escaped a suspension last season for what many thought was a high and blindside side hit to the head of Boston Bruins forward Marc Savard. This past Sunday, a knee-on-knee collision with Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin also went unpunished.

The telephone hearing with the league - as opposed to an in-person interview - suggests that any suspension could be a maximum of five games.

The Volchenov-Boychuk incident occurred in the second period of Tuesday's game in New Jersey and Volchenkov was given a minor elbowing penalty on the play.

Boychuk remained in the game after receiving the elbow.
