Nashville Predators defenseman Dante Fabbro will have a hearing Wednesday after throwing an elbow at Carolina’s Brock McGinn during Tuesday night’s game, the NHL’s department of player safety announced.

Fabbro was given a two-minute minor for elbowing McGinn hard into the boards midway through the second period with the Predators holding a 2-0 lead. The Hurricanes converted two power-play opportunities to tie the game before winning 3-2 in overtime.

Fabbro, 22, has nine points (two goals, seven assists) to go with 21 penalty minutes on the season. He has played in all 26 games so far.
