Martin Hanzal will have a hearing on Monday for his hit on Jeff Petry during the Phoenix Coyotes game against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Hanzal received a two minute minor penalty for charging on the play and the grounds being considered for suspension is charging. Aside from the hit Hanzal had a pretty good night opening the scoring for Phoenix, who won the game five to four.

Petry was not injured on the play just shaken up. I cannot find the video and didn’t see the hit but by the sounds of it I highly doubt Hanzal will get more than one game as he served a penalty and Petry was not injured. I could be wrong though like I said I haven’t seen the hit. What do you think? How many games would you give Hanzal for the hit.
