NEW YORK (AP) _ Phoenix Coyotes forward Rich Tocchet was suspended Sunday by the NHL, pending a hearing, for a high-stick penalty.

The date of a hearing for Tocchet, who missed the Coyotes’ game at Chicago on Sunday, will be set Monday.

The suspension was the result of a high stick against St. Louis Blues forward Scott Pellerin in the second period Saturday. Tocchet was given a match penalty for deliberate injury on the play.
