Blues' Lapierre offered hearing for Boyle hit
St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre has been offered an in-person hearing for his hit that knocked out San Jose defenseman Dan Boyle.
The NHL's department of player safety announced Wednesday that Lapierre is suspended pending his hearing. Players have an opportunity for in-person hearings for any suspensions that could exceed five games.
Lapierre was given a game misconduct for hitting Boyle from behind in the first period of San Jose's 6-2 road win Tuesday. Boyle was knocked out on the play and taken off the ice on a stretcher before spending the night in a hospital.
The Sharks said Boyle would return to San Jose on Wednesday for treatment and further evaluation. He will miss at least Thursday's game at Dallas.
