Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Wednesday for his spear on San Jose Sharks forward Chris Tierney on Tuesday night in Game 4 of their series.

The incident occurred in the second period with the Oilers already down 5-0. Draisaitl raised his stick under the legs of Tierney after the Sharks forward moved the puck behind the Oilers' net.

Draisaitl, 21, was given a five-minute major penalty for spearing and a game misconduct. The Sharks made the score 6-0 on the ensuing power play. Tierney did not return to action.
