Brayden Schenn To Have Disciplinary Hearing For Massive Hit On Volchenkov

Philadelphia Flyers center Brayden Schenn will have the first meeting of the NHL season with Brendan Shanahan for this monstrous hit on Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov:

No penalty was called on the play. I don’t think he’ll receive a suspension for this hit, but he may be the first player fined under the rule of the new CBA which states:

“Permissible fines for on-ice infractions increased to an amount up to 50 percent of the Player’s Paragraph 1 NHL Salary and Bonuses (not including Performance Bonuses) divided by the number of days in the Regular Season and may not exceed $10,000 on a first-time basis, and $15,000 on a second and subsequent time basis (determined in accordance with a rolling 12-month period). All fines above $5,000 are subject to the hearing procedure accorded to Players subject to suspension not exceeding five (5) Games.”
