Blues' Sundqvist Faces NHL Hearing for Grzelcyk Hit

St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist may face consequences for his hit on Matt Grzelcyk on Wednesday night.

Sundqvist will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday, the league announced.

Sundqvist received a two-minute minor penalty for boarding after checking Grzelcyk hard in the head during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Bruins defenseman didn't return to Boston's eventual overtime loss and may miss more time, which could factor into how the league disciplines Sundqvist ahead of Game 3 in St. Louis on Saturday.
