In a significant turn of events, the NHL's Department of Player Safety has upped the ante regarding Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly's recent actions. They've decided to call him in for an in-person hearing following his controversial cross-check on Senators center Ridly Greig.

This move suggests that Rielly could be facing a suspension of more than just five games. The incident unfolded in the dying seconds of Saturday's game, right after Greig's crucial empty-net goal celebration, prompting Rielly's aggressive response.


Now, Rielly, a seasoned player with a clean disciplinary record, is staring down the possibility of a lengthy absence. This puts added pressure on the Maple Leafs' defensive lineup during a crucial stretch in the playoff race.
