Lee to Have Hearing for Hit on Gunnarsson

According to NHL Player Safety on twitter, Islanders forward Anders Lee will have a hearing for an illegal hit on Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson in Saturdays game.
It was initially reported that Lee was unlikely to receive any supplemental discipline for the hit.

Well, here is a video of the incident below, you be the judge.

Given the leagues recent track record with incidents similar to this, I expect Lee to be suspended for a game or two.  Although, I am not sure that is fair because after watching it a few times I am not convinced that Lee's intention on the play was to hit him in the manner that he did.
