Manson has been fined $2,486.56, the maximum allowable under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for an inappropriate gesture aimed at Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri during NHL Game No. 1104 in Toronto on Thursday, March 24, the National Hockey League announced today.
The incident occurred at 17:17 of the third period. Manson was assessed a game misconduct.
The fracas occurred after Kadri boarded Manson during a wild 6-5 Toronto win in OT.
That Kadri was on the receiving end of said gesture is ironic, given he was fined $5,000 earlier this year for making the same throat-slash towards Calgary captain Mark Giordano.
That incident occurred in mid-February, after Kadri took exception to a heavy Giordano check. While on the bench, the Leafs forward made the gesture, one the NHL has been cracking down on since 2000.
