Expectation is CHI’s Duncan Keith will have a disciplinary hearing with NHL for his highstick on Jeff Carter.

Here’s an interesting comparison to a Department of Player Safety verdict from the 2011-12 season by Puck Daddy’s Greg Wyshynski. “Regardless of where the slash was intended…[Pierre-Marc] Bouchard is responsible for his stick and the end result,” Shanahan judged. Bouchard didn’t have any prior suspension history and hadn’t been fined. He received two games for an unintentional high stick to the face of Columbus forward Matt Calvert.
