Phoenix Coyotes captain Shane Doan has a disciplinary hearing this afternoon with the NHL's Department of Player Safety for his hit on Stars forward Jamie Benn in Tuesday night's game at American Airlines Center.

Doan hit Benn in the head with an elbow during the second period of the game, a 4-3 shootout victory for Dallas, and received a minor for elbowing. Stars coach Glen Gulutzan called the hit a "suspendable offense."

Benn was shaken up on the play, but returned to game later in the period.
