The incident occurred in the third period of Toronto’s loss to Boston Saturday when Hyman delivered a late hit on McAvoy. Hyman was assessed a five-minute interference penalty on the play, then dropped the gloves with Bruins defenceman Matt Grzelcyk.
Toronto was trailing 6-2 at the time of the hit.
McAvoy has missed 20 games so far this season due to a concussion.
