Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Corey Perry will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for his hit on Jason Zucker from Tuesday night.

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Wednesday afternoon in relation to his hit on Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker on Tuesday night.

The hearing will take place via phone, which means Perry could not be suspended beyond a maximum of five games for the offense. It will occur at noon on Wednesday.

The play occurred at the 4:21 mark of the second period. Zucker had his head turned and did not appear to see Perry coming. Perry connected on a high, late hit, which appeared to make Zucker's head the principle point of contact. The Ducks forward was assessed a five-minute major for interference and a game misconduct.

Zucker was injured on the play and unable to return to the contest.

Perry could face discipline for an illegal hit to the head and/or interference infractions, according to an announcement by the league.
