Colorado Avalanche forward Chuck Kobasew has been fined $2,500 for tripping Vancouver defenseman Dan Hamhuis on an icing call during Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss in Denver.

The incident occurred with just under six minutes remaining in the second period, with Kobasew receiving a two-minute tripping minor on the play. The $2,500 in fine money is the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement and will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Finally: If anybody out there has any (and I mean any) info related to this play, post it in the comments section. I couldn’t find video or quotes or even a game recap mention of the trip. It’s like it doesn’t exist (beyond the fact it hit Kobasew in the wallet.)
