Kings’ Drew Doughty to have hearing for hit on William Carrier

HC at Noon discusses Drew Doughty's questionable hit on Vegas forward Will Carrier, which the panel thinks is at least worthy of a one-game suspension, which would really hurt his team.

Los Angeles Kings defenceman Drew Doughty will have a hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety on Thursday for an illegal check to the head of Vegas Golden Knights forward William Carrier.

The hit came late in the third period of Vegas’s Game 1 win.

Carrier was forced to leave the game with an upper-body injury and did not return.
