Edmonton Oilers’ forward Leon Draisaitl was fined $2,569.44 for spearing San Jose Sharks’ Chris Tierney in Game 4 of the two Pacific Division rivals’ first-round series.
The fine, which is the maximum amount allowed, was handed down after a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety Wednesday afternoon.
Draisaitl will not be suspended for the spear.
Draisaitl received a five-minute major and was ejected after spearing Tierney in the groin Tuesday night.
The incident happened while the Oilers were down 5-0 late in the second period in a game they lost 7-0.
Draisaitl has never been suspended during his young NHL career, but that was a possibility for the spear.
The Oilers and Sharks play Game 5 of their series back in Edmonton on Thursday.
