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.
