Report: Flyers’ Rinaldo waives right to an in-person hearing


Philadelphia Flyers’ forward Zac Rinaldo has reportedly waived his right to an in-person hearing.

He was offered a face-to-face conversation for his hit on Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang Tuesday night.

Since Rinaldo was offered an in-person hearing he is eligible to be suspended for six or more games.

He received a boarding major and a game misconduct for this hit:

The Penguins announced Wednesday that Letang would be a game-time decision when Pittsburgh plays host to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Rinaldo has a history with the Department of Player Safety. In April of last year he was suspended four games for an illegal check to the head of Buffalo Sabres defenseman Chad Ruhwedel.
