Ducks’ Vatanen fined for elbowing Booth (Update: Booth has broken nose)

7 Comments

Anaheim defenseman Sami Vatanen has been fined $3,393.82 — the maximum allowable under the CBA — for this elbow on Toronto’s David Booth from Wednesday night:

The incident occurred midway through the third period of Anaheim’s 4-0 win, and Vatanen wasn’t penalized on the play. Booth left the game and didn’t return; this morning, the Leafs called up Matt Frattin from the AHL Marlies as a potential injury replacement.
