Toronto Maple Leafs defender Roman Polak is to have a hearing today over his hit on Columbus Blue Jackets forward Oliver Bjorkstrand in last night’s game.

This was the offence:

Polak got five minutes and a game misconduct for the offence.

You can read details on the ensuing seven minute penalty kill in the recap.

This is presumably a phone hearing and the result could be a fine or a suspension or nothing. We will update you when we have results.
