Flames’ Mangiapane receives cross-check hearing against Kraken’s McCann

Calgary Flames forward Andrew Mangiapane will hold a cross-review hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Sunday.

Mangiapane was given a match penalty on Saturday evening for intent to injure and was subsequently excluded from the game. Since he was assessed a match penalty, the Flames forward had to face a hearing before the Department of Player Safety.

The incident occurred midway through the first period when Seattle Kraken forward Jared McCann blocked a shot from Mangiapane and was still on the ice when Mangiapane delivered a brutal counterpunch to the back of his neck.

McCann left the ice briefly, but returned to the bench before the end of the period.
