According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman the NHL Department Of Player Safety will indeed be taking a closer look at Soucy and will have a hearing for the cross-check he delivered to Connor McDavid's face at the end of game three.

Sounds like there will be a hearing for Carson Soucy out of the end-of-game scrum in Edmonton last night


The situation had happened at the end of the game, after the final horn had gone off, so many believe that this is a significant contributing factor in why Carson Soucy is now facing further disciplinary action.


A cross-check delivered from Vancouver Canucks defenseman Nikita Zadorov at almost the exact same moment is what appears to have caused the cross-check from Soucy to strike McDavid in the face.

However it seems the Department of Player Safety strongly feels that further discipline is needed in this case.

Here's the video of the play that's under review:
