Colin Campbell, NHL Senior Executive Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations, conducted a disciplinary hearing this morning with New York Islanders forward Chris Simon, Islanders team representatives and a representative of the National Hockey League Players’ Association.
A decision relative to that hearing has not yet been made. Any report to the contrary is false.

It’s uncertain when a decision will be handed down. There might be concern on the league’s part about how its ruling could affect a criminal probe launched by the office of Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, especially in a situation where neither Hollweg, the Rangers nor the league requested legal intervention.
