NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will hear Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek's appeal on his two-game suspension Tuesday, according to multiple reports.
Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer adds that Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher is expected to accompany Voracek to the hearing, along with an NHLPA representative.
Voracek received the suspension on Sunday for interference on New York Islanders defenceman Johnny Boychuk one night earlier. The 29-year-old picked up a five-minute major for interference during Saturday's 5-2 win after appearing to raise his shoulder into Boychuk as the defenceman chased after the puck in the Flyers end.
Voracek sat out of the first game of the ban on Monday night as the Flyers defeated the Ottawa Senators.
He appeared to be respond to the suspension on Twitter Sunday by posting five "crying of laughter" emojis and Flyers head coach Scott Gordon sounded off on the ban on Monday.
