Coyotes' Hanzal to have hearing for hit on Oilers' Petry
Phoenix centre called for charging during Saturday's win over Edmonton
Martin Hanzal will have to answer for his actions on Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers.
The Phoenix Coyotes centre will have a hearing with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety Monday for a charging incident on Edmonton Oilers blue-liner Jeff Petry.
The infraction occurred at 13:42 of the first period of Phoenix's 5-4 victory when Petry was levelled into the boards by Hanzal after playing the puck.
Petry remained in the game while Hanzal received a two-minute penalty for charging.
Hanzal, who stands 6'6 and weighs 230 pounds, is a 26-year-old native of the Czech Republic. He's enjoyed a hot start to the 2013-14 campaign with 11 points (five goals, six assists) in 12 games so far.
Petry, a six-foot-three, 195-pound native of Ann Arbor, Mich., has two goals and two assists this year to go along with eight penalty minutes in 12 games.
