The NHL’s CBA makes for quite the variety of allowable fines, as Wednesday’s verdicts from the Department of Player Safety showed.
- Dustin Byfuglien is $5K poorer after being fined for a slash on Jay Beagle from a physical 4-3 overtime win for the Jets against the Capitals. You can see footage of those slashes in the video above this post’s headline; Beagle was clearly shaken up during the play. Read more about that situation at NBC Sports Washington.
- During that same game, Madison Bowey delivered a hard hit on Matt Hendricks. The NHL fined Bowey $1,890.68 for interference. Russian Machine Never Breaks has footage of that check.
- Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland was fined $2,688.17 for a cross-check on Brandon Saad of the Chicago Blackhawks. Footage of that infraction isn’t available at the moment.
