Correy Perry on the Anaheim Ducks will face an afternoon phone hearing today with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan over his hit Tuesday night on the Minnesota Wild's Jason Zucker.
Zucker had tapped the puck behind the Ducks' net and was looking the other way when Perry hit him late. His shoulder appeared to make direct contact with Zucker's head.
Zucker was on the ice for about three minutes before he sat up with assistance.
He left the game and didn't return. In the locker room after the game Zucker was seen chatting up teammates and signing autographs but was unavailable for comment.
Perry was assessed a five-minute major for interference and a game misconduct at 4:21 of the second period.
