01:43 PM ET 04.11 | New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov will have a discipline hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday morning. The hearing was called because Volchenkov illegally elbowed Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand in the head. The incident occurred in the second period of Wednesday night's game. Marchand was forced to leave the contest and would not return. Volchenkov was given a five-minute major for elbowing and a game misconduct. The hearing will be held over the phone, which means Volchenkov can only be suspended a maximum of five games. As of Thursday, the Bruins have not updated Marchand's status.

I agree Bishop but he won't get 5

Hey Anton someone named Daniel's on the phone for you

I like it better when, without causing catastrophic injury, Players handle it themselves. Taylor Hall let go a nasty chop in last nights playoff killing game for the Oilers. Before the game was over Phoenix had evened the ledger.

They way things are going we are going to be nostalgic about the good old days when Soupy was in charge.

Let me ask you, Spiny. How do you think this case compares in severity and discipline with Cooke's hit on McDonagh from 2011?

April 11, 2013  02:28 PM ET

He got 4 games

April 11, 2013  02:35 PM ET

Good.
