The NHL has completed its hearing looking into James Wisniewski's hit that knocked Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook out of Wednesday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks and a decision is expected by the end of Thursday.

Wisniewski, his agent, the Ducks, the NHL and the players union were part of a conference call on Thursday. A decision is required by NHL rules to be handed down before the Ducks' next game which is on Friday against the New York Islanders.

Wisniewski, a defenseman and former Blackhawk, received a charging penalty for the hit in the second period.

It's the second time in as many contests that a Blackhawks defenseman has been knocked out of a game by an illegal hit.
