Boston Bruins forward Shawn Thornton will have an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for an incident with Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik on Saturday at TD Garden.

The hearing is set for 1pm et on Friday afternoon in New York City.

Thornton was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

At 11:06 of the first period in Saturday's contest, Thornton confronted Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik in a scrum, pulling him to the ice and throwing punches. Orpik was removed from the ice on a stretcher. Thornton was assessed a match penalty on the play.

Orpik was taken to a local hospital, where he was alert and conscious and later travelled back to Pittsburgh with the team.
