Oilers’ Zack Kassian set for hearing after altercation with Flames’ Matthew Tkachuk


Edmonton Oilers forward Zack Kassian will have a hearing Monday following his altercation with Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk during Saturday night’s game.

The NHL’s department of player safety tweeted about the scheduled hearing Sunday morning.

Kassian took offence to a hit from Tkachuk in the second period of Edmonton’s 4-3 loss, throwing off his gloves and punching the Flames winger while tossing him to the ice twice.

Kassian received a double-roughing minor and a 10-minute misconduct on the play. Tkachuk was not penalized.

The 28-year-old Kassian has 13 goals, 15 assists and 64 penalty minutes through 44 games with Edmonton this season.

The Oilers’ next game is Tuesday against Nashville. They host Calgary on Jan. 29.
