New York Rangers defenceman John Moore had a hearing with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety on Wednesday regarding an illegal check to the head of Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise during Tuesday's game.

During the third period of the Canadiens' 7-4, Game 5  victory over the Rangers, Moore was assessed a match penalty and ejected from the game after delivering the hit to Weise.

Weise briefly left to the dressing room after the hit, but returned to the bench before the conclusion of the game.

The league also reviewed Rene Bourque's cross-check on Derek Dorsett and the Ranger forward's headbutt on Mike Weaver but decided neither incident warranted any disciplinary action.
