Ottawa Senators' forward Jarkko Ruutu is getting called on the carpet.

The NHL has scheduled a disciplinary hearing today for Ruutu, who in the third period of last night's game against the Montreal Canadiens, elbowed Maxim Lapierre in the head.

Lapierre did not appear to suffer any injury on the play and Ruutu was assessed a two-minute minor for charging. But the infraction did violate at least two tenets of the NHL's policy on hits to the head. One, Ruutu appeared to target Lapierre's head and only made contact with the head. Two, the hit was delivered with an elbow.
