Colorado Avalanche left wing Cody McLeod will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Tuesday at the League's New York offices after a boarding incident during Thursday's game against the Detroit Red Wings at Pepsi Center.

McLeod was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

At 2:13 of the first period McLeod was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Detroit's Niklas Kronwall.
