Montreal Canadiens forward Ryan White had an in-person hearing with the NHL this morning in New York regarding his hit to the head of Flyers defenceman Kent Huskins.

White was ejected for the hit which came 6:11 into the first period of Philadelphia's 7-3 win on Monday night. Huskins left the game with what the Flyers said was a concussion.

White launched himself at the veteran Huskins, but missed his body and caught him square on the jaw.

The in-person hearing gives the league the right to suspend him for more than five games if it wishes. A phone hearing would have limited any suspension to five games or less.

White has never been suspended in 88 career NHL games over three seasons.
