Ottawa Senators defenceman Eric Gryba had a disciplinary hearing over the phone with the NHL on Friday for his hit on Lars Eller of the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 on Thursday night.

Gryba caught Eller with a crunching hit at the blue line as the Canadiens forward was receiving a pass from defenceman Raphael Diaz.

Eller went airborne and slammed face-first down to the ice, leaving him bleeding profusely as trainers tended to him.

He left the ice on a stretcher and was taken to hospital with a concussion, facial fractures and dental fractures. He was expected to spend the night at the hospital, pending further observation.

Gryba was assessed a five-minute major for interference and a game misconduct on the play.

Game 2 of the series is scheduled for Friday night in Montreal.
