In a significant development, the NHL's Department of Player Safety has escalated the situation involving Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly, offering him an in-person hearing for his cross-check on Senators center Ridly Greig.

This move suggests the potential for a suspension exceeding five games. The incident unfolded in the dying seconds of Saturday's game, following Greig's pivotal empty-net goal celebration, prompting Rielly's aggressive response.

Rielly, a seasoned player with an impeccable disciplinary record, faces the prospect of a lengthy absence, placing added pressure on the Maple Leafs' defensive lineup.




The ramifications of Rielly's potential suspension loom large as the team navigates the critical playoff stretch.
