Minnesota Wild forward Ryan Hartman is facing another suspension after throwing his stick toward officials after Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety scheduled a phone hearing with Hartman on Monday for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Hartman, 29, apparently was upset that Vegas defenseman Noah Hanifin was not penalized for high-sticking him late in the third period.

After Golden Knights forward Jonathan Marchessault’s game-ending empty-net goal in OT, Hartman tossed his stick in the officials’ direction. He received a 10-minute game misconduct penalty for using abusive language.

Hartman has been fined seven times and suspended three times in his 10-year career, including a two-game ban for tripping in November.

He has 42 points (19 goals, 23 assists) and 72 penalty minutes in 68 games this season. He has 275 points (126 goals, 149 assists) and 577 PIM in 574 career games with four teams.
