Toronto Maple Leafs forward Carter Ashton will have a conference call hearing on Friday with the NHL Department of  Player Safety over his hit on Calgary Flames defenceman Derek Smith.

During Wednesday night's game in Calgary, Ashton drove Smith into the boards from behind. He was assessed a two-minute penalty on the play and then a further five minutes for fighting after engaging with Calgary defenceman Shane O'Brien, who took Ashton to task for the hit.

In 10 games this season, the 22-year-old Ashton has one assist.
