Eichel, Voracek face NHL hearings

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety has a busy Sunday ahead.

Buffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel and Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek are both facing hearings over actions from their respective games on Saturday.

Eichel faces potential discipline for an illegal check to the head of forward Carl Soderberg during a game against the Colorado Avalanche. Eichel received a minor penalty for the incident at the time.

Soderberg remained in the game for the 3-0 Avalanche victory.

Voracek is being brought in for a major interference penalty that resulted in New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk leaving the game. The Flyers won that game 5-2.
