Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk will have a hearing later on Monday for his elbow on Los Angeles Kings defenceman Drew Doughty on Sunday, the NHL Department of Player Safety confirmed.
The incident occurred in the first period of the Flames' 5-2 victory at the Scotiabank Saddledome behind and to the right of Jonathan Quick's goal. No penalty was assessed on the play, but Tkachuk was penalized for roughing later in the shame shift when a scrum occurred in its wake.
In his rookie season, the 19-year-old Tkachuk has appeared in 68 games, notching 13 goals and adding 33 assists. He is fifth in NHL rookie scoring.
The Flames are next in action on Tuesday when they visit the Washington Capitals.
