Less than a week after having a game misconduct penalty rescinded by the league, Philadelphia Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk will have a phone hearing with NHL Director of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan on Sunday for a hit on Ottawa Senators defenceman Mike Lundin and could face supplemental discipline.

The incident occurred at the 9:13 mark in the first period of the Flyers Saturday afternoon, 2-1 victory over the Senators.

Zolnierczyk appeared to leave his feet as he delivered a high hit to Lundin who remained down on the ice before leaving the game, and did not return to the game due to an upper-body injury.

The Flyers forward was assessed a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct.

Zolnierczyk has appeared in six games so far this season for the Flyers and has one assist and 36 penalty minutes.

During last Wednesday's 4-1 Flyers victory over the Washington Capitals, Zolnierczyk was given a five-minute kneeing major and a game misconduct but had that penalty removed from his record by the league.

The 25-year-old Toronto native is in his second NHL season after signing with the Flyers as an undrafted free agent.
