Senators winger Austin Watson will have a disciplinary hearing on Sunday, the Department of Player Safety announced (Twitter link). The play in question is an interference penalty he had on Bruins defenseman Jack Ahcan in Saturday’s game, one that saw him receive a two-minute minor. Conor Ryan of the Boston Sports Journal has the clip of the hit here.
Watson has one prior suspension for an on-ice incident when he was suspended for two games back in 2017 for boarding. While that won’t factor into how much money he’d forfeit if he was to be suspended (the repeat offender tag for that lasts 24 months), it could be taken into consideration for any discipline here.
Ottawa wraps up what has been a very busy week for them on Sunday when they host Washington Sunday afternoon for their fifth game in seven days. Accordingly, a decision on any further penalty to Watson will need to be made quickly following the hearing.
