Montreal Canadiens defenseman Chris Wideman will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday.

Wideman is facing discipline for head-butting Bruins forward Erik Haula during the third period of the Canadiens' 5-1 loss on Wednesday in Boston.

Wideman was assessed a pair of minor penalties for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct against Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo.

Wideman, 32, has nine points (two goals, seven assists) in 23 games this season. He has 54 points (18 goals, 36 assists) in 204 career games with the Ottawa Senators, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers and Canadiens.
