Canucks’ Soucy to have hearing for cross-check; Zadorov fined

Carson Soucy

The NHL will hold a hearing for Vancouver Canucks defenseman Carson Soucy for his cross-check to the face of Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid at the end of Sunday night’s game, the league announced Monday.

Canucks D Nikita Zadorov was fined $5,000 for his cross-check to McDavid in the same sequence. It’s the maximum amount allowed by the collective bargaining agreement.

Meanwhile, league experts expected Soucy to be suspended.

After the final horn, McDavid was cross-checked in the back by Zadorov, pushing him into Soucy’s cross-check to the face.

The Canucks won the game 4-3 to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals.

Soucy received a two-minute minor for the hit, but it was moot since it came after the horn.

Soucy had three hits and two blocks in 17:48 of ice time Sunday night. He has three assists in the series vs. the Oilers.

McDavid was held without a point in 29:42 of ice time Sunday night. He has five points (one goal, four assists) in the series.

Game 4 is set for Tuesday night in Edmonton.
