St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre has been offered an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety at a date and time to be determined for an incident against the San Jose Sharks at Scottrade Center on Oct 15.

At 5:22 of the first period, Lapierre collided with San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle near the boards in the San Jose zone.
