Edmonton Oilers forward Zack Kassian will have a hearing Monday following his altercation with Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk during Saturday night’s game.

The NHL’s department of player safety tweeted about the scheduled hearing Sunday morning.

Kassian took offence to a hit from Tkachuk in the second period of Edmonton’s 4-3 loss, throwing off his gloves and punching the Flames winger while tossing him to the ice twice.
