Belfast Giants player-coach Derrick Walser will face the Dundee Stars at the SSE Arena tomorrow night after escaping a potential suspension.

Stars management asked for the Elite League's Department of Player Safety to review an incident during the first period of last Sunday's meeting between the teams in Scotland.

The Stars felt that a hit Walser put in on Brett Switzer was illegal, but the DOPS deemed that it was a check to the shoulder rather than the head.

The Giants will confirm their place in the knockout stages of the Challenge Cup if they beat the Stars and then win away to Braehead Clan on Sunday.
