Buffalo Sabres forward Benoit Pouliot will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Saturday for an illegal check to the head against Florida Panthers defenseman Keith Yandle. The incident occurred with 2: 15 remaining in the third period in the Panthers' 4-1 victory against the Sabres at KeyBank Center on Friday. Pouliot's high hit behind the Florida net knocked off Yandle's helmet. No penalty was called on the play.
