Dubinsky to hear from NHL

According to this report from Columbus Dispatch reporter Aaron Portzline, Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky will hear from the league after his second period boarding major on defenseman Rob Scuderi and may face supplemental discipline. Dubinsky had the view of Scuderi’s number for much of the way into Columbus’ attacking zone, eventually sending the Kings’ defenseman face first into the area where the boards meet the glass.

According to Portzline, Brendan Shanahan will conduct the hearing by phone. Dubinsky has no suspension history in the NHL. He picked up a five minute major, a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct on the play. He also was assessed five minutes for fighting Mike Richards, who immediately engaged him.
