Kings’ Brendan Lemieux faces suspension for biting

The NHL Department of Player Safety has offered Los Angeles Kings forward Brendan Lemieux an in-person hearing (via Zoom) after he bit Ottawa Senators forward Brady Tkachuk on Saturday night.Lemieux received a match penalty and was ejected after grappling with Tkachuk during the third period of the host Kings’ 4-2 win.Tkachuk got up from the encounter with blood on his hand and told officials Lemieux had bitten him.”It’s outrageous,” Tkachuk said after the game, per the Ottawa Sun. “Kids don’t even do that anymore. Babies do that. I don’t even know what he was thinking. He’s just a complete brick head. He’s got nothing up there. Bad guy, bad player, but what a joke he is.”No date has been set for Lemieux’s hearing. In-person hearings are reserved for incidents when a player faces a suspension of more than five games.
