TORONTO – Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly accepted an in-person hearing with the NHL’s Department of Safety, a day after Ottawa suspended showboater Ridly Greig with a late cross-examination.

The NHL said Sunday that the hearing is set for Tuesday in New York.

Greig scored with 5.1 seconds left in Ottawa’s 5-3 win Saturday night, racing down the middle and firing a shot from short range into the empty net. As the Ottawa player went back up the boards towards the bench, Rielly hit him high with the crosscheck.

Rielly received a major penalty for cross-checking and game misconduct. Toronto sent enforcer Ryan Reaves out for the final confrontation, but officials quickly stepped in to prevent a fight.
