Phoenix Coyotes defenceman Rostislav Klesla is scheduled for a disciplinary hearing on Sunday for his hit on Matt Halischuk of the Nashville Predators in Game 4 on Friday.

Halischuk was chasing for the puck toward the side boards when Klesla pushed the Predators forward from behind, causing him to fall awkwardly into the boards.

Halischuk left for the dressing room after the hit but returned to finish the game.

Klesla was assessed a two-minute minor penalty for boarding on the play.
