Montreal Canadiens forward Paul Byron will have a hearing Wednesday for charging Florida Panthers defenseman MacKenzie Weegar, the Department of Player Safety announced.

The incident occurred during the second period of Tuesday's meeting between the two clubs.

It appears Byron makes direct contact with Weegar's head. He was assessed a two-minute minor for charging on the play. Weegar left the game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Byron has 10 goals and eight assists in 34 games this season.
