Report: Marchand to have disciplinary hearing

Brad Marchand will have a disciplinary hearing over the phone tomorrow with Brendan Shanahan, according to the Boston Globe.

Marchand hit Sami Salo low on Saturday, resulting in a clipping penalty, a five-minute major and a game misconduct. According to Vancouver GM Mike Gillis, Salo suffered a concussion.

"Dirty play by a dirty player," Gillis told Vancouver's The Province.

Marchand said after the game that he believed he hit Salo above the knees. Marchand hit Vancouver's Daniel Sedin in a similar fashion during last season's Stanley Cup Finals and was not penalized.
