New York Islanders forward Trevor Gillies will have an in-person disciplinary hearing with the NHL on Friday after a hit-from-behind incident during Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

In-person hearings usually signal that a suspension of five games or more is on the way, but that is not guaranteed.

Gillies slammed Minnesota's Cal Clutterbuck into the boards in retaliation for a hit that Clutterbuck put on New York's Justin DiBenedetto moments earlier in the opening minutes of the second period. Gillies received a five-minute major for hitting from behind, plus 10-minute and game misconducts for his actions.

Gillies was back playing his first game after serving a nine-game suspension for delivering a blow to the head and then punching Pittsburgh's Eric Tangradi during a melee between the clubs on Feb. 11.

The 32-year-old Gillies has one goal and 124 penalty minutes in 33 games this season. The 6'3", 215 lb. winger from Cambridge, Ontario is earning $500,000 this season, and forfeited just over $24,000 while serving the nine-game ban in February.
