Boston Bruins defenceman Andrew Ference will have a discipline hearing Thursday afternoon with the league for his elbow on Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski.

Ference elbowed Grabovski deep in Boston's zone in the first period of the Bruins 4-1 win over the Leafs Wednesday night.

According to the league, potential supplemental discipline is being considered for an illegal check to the head.
