Devils’ Gomez fined for elbow on Emelin


New Jersey Devils forward Scott Gomez has been fined $1,478.49 (the maximum allowed under the CBA) for his elbow to the head of Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin on Friday night.

Gomez was assessed a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct on the play.

Emelin remained in the game and finished a minus-1 while logging 21:44 in ice time in the 3-2 shootout loss.

The Devils were not expecting any supplemental discipline for Gomez.

Report: Devils don’t expect supplemental discipline for Gomez elbow


Veteran New Jersey Devils forward Scott Gomez found himself out of Friday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens after getting ejected for an elbowing major in the second period.

Although it appears the Devils believe that punishment handed out by the officials will be all that comes from this incident.

From the Star-Ledger:

The Devils do not expect Scott Gomez to receive any further punishment for his elbow to Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin’s mouth and subsequent game misconduct penalty Friday night at Prudential Center.

In fact, they were surprised Gomez got the major penalty in response to a shove from Emelin that sent the Devils’ center tumbling into the end boards a few moments earlier in the second period.

“I didn’t think it was bad when I saw it. I thought it was really exaggerated once I looked at it over,” Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “But that’s a call in the official’s hands. Nothing we can do about it.”

New Jersey Devils forward Scott Gomez was given a major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct for catching Alexei Emelin in the face with a right elbow.

The incident occurred late in the second period. The puck was along the boards, with Gomez standing nearby and Emelin shadowing him. As Emelin got closer, Gomez threw up the elbow, triggering a response from the Canadiens.

The Habs were unable to score on the five-minute power play.

Just before Gomez threw the elbow, Emelin had caught the veteran forward with a heavy hit into the end boards, as the two players went for a loose puck.
