Winnipeg Jets Adam Lowry will have a hearing for hit on Oliver Kylington

Lowry to have a hearing with NHL Player Safety.

At the end of the second period of the Heritage Classic in Regina Jets forward Adam Lowry laid out Calgary Flames defenceman Oliver Kylington with a hit into the boards in the Calgary zone. Lowry’s hit immediately resulted in a scrum between the teams and thankfully for Kylington he was protected while he was laid out by Flames goalie Dave Rittich and Jets forward Andrew Copp who had the presence of mind to interpose themselves between the scrum and Kylington.

If you missed it here was the hit:

It resulted in a two minute penalty to Lowry for boarding.

Today NHL Player Safety announced that Lowry will have a hearing for his hit.

Here is what Lowry had to say after the game about the hit and whether he expected a call from Player Safety:
