NHL Announces Rempe's Next Steps After Ejection For A Vicious Hit



Matt Rempe is building up a laundry list of offenses relating to being too physical and causing danger on the ice. This continued last night with a terrifying hit on New Jersey Devils defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler.




He was swiftly ejected from the game and many assumed he would face further punishment. Today we have confirmation that he will indeed face punishment as he has a meeting with the NHL's Department of Player Safety.

NY Rangers' Matt Rempe will have a hearing today for elbowing New Jersey's Jonas Siegenthaler.


The hearing will be via phone. This is key because it means Rempe can be suspended for a maximum of 5 games by the NHL.

It's a phone hearing so it will be 5 games or less


With the hearing coming later this afternoon we will likely have an answer on Rempe's future by the end of today. As those details come out on his potential suspension we will pass them along to you.
