Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - The NHL Department of Player Safety is having a hearing today with Johan Larsson.  Larsson cross checked Florida’s Vincent Trocheck in the face late in Thursday’s game. He received a 5 minute major cross checking penalty and a match penalty.

Larsson declined comment on Friday through the Sabres PR department because he spoke about the incident after the game. Head coach Phil Housley said “It’s a heat of the battle moment where emotions are running high and it’s unfortunate, but we’ll know more later on today.”
