New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban is scheduled to have a hearing with the NHL on Wednesday after tripping Anaheim Ducks forward Trevor Zegras.

Subban, 32, was not whistled for a penalty on the play during the Devils’ 4-0 loss to the Ducks on Tuesday.

The former Norris Trophy recipient received a $5,000 fine by the league last week for tripping Calgary Flames forward Milan Lucic in a game on Oct. 26. The fine was the maximum allowable under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement.

Subban has three assists in eight games this season. He has 448 points (110 goals, 338 assists) in 765 career games with the Montreal Canadiens, Nashville Predators and Devils.
