I can't see the NHL wanting to give up rights to an actual in person hearing though.
Right now, all suspensions greater than 5 games require an in person hearing. The player can choose to waive that right and have a phone hearing at their own disgression. I would assume that if a player said to the league "I'll waive my in person right if we do a Skype call instead of a phone call" the league would set it up.
