Nyquist set for hear­ing

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Af­ter re­flect­ing much of Mon­day, Detroit Red Wings for­ward Gus­tav Nyquist opted out of at­tend­ing an in-per­son hear­ing re­gard­ing his up­com­ing sus­pen­sion and in­stead will set­tle for a phone in­ter­view Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon with­the Na­tional Hockey League’s Depart­ment of Player Safety. In the first pe­riod of Sun­day’s 6-3 loss to the Wild, Nyquist was en­gaged in a puck bat­tle along the boards when he turned around and used the tip of his blade to spear Spur­geon in the face. Spur­geon con­tin­ued to play, and Nyquist said af­ter­ward it was ac­ci­den­tal. Video re­view shows Nyquist act­ing reck­lessly with his stick, and the fact he was in­vited to at­tend his hear­ing in per­son likely means his sus­pen­sion be­gins at six games.
