Disciplinary hearings involving Bruins

December, 9, 2013
The NHL will likely conduct three disciplinary hearings at different points this week, all involving the Boston Bruins.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal will have his hearing Monday with the department of player safety for his kneeing incident to the head of Bruins forward Brad Marchand during Boston’s 3-2 win Saturday at TD Garden.

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf will have a hearing Tuesday for his hit on Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller during Boston’s 5-2 win Sunday at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Lastly, Bruins forward Shawn Thornton is currently suspended while he awaits his hearing for his incident with Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik during Saturday’s game. The date for Thornton's hearing hasn't been announced, but it's likely to be later in the week.
