New York Rangers forward Andre Deveaux had a hearing via conference call today with the NHL after he was assessed a match penalty on Wednesday in a game against the Florida Panthers.

Deveaux was given a five-minute major for an intentional hit to the head plus the match penalty for attempt to injure after he hit Florida's Tomas Fleischmann in the neutral zone. The Panthers player left the game to get checked out but he eventually returned to action.

The 27-year-old Deveaux has one assist and 29 penalty minutes in nine games this season. He has never drawn an NHL suspension before.
