Perry needed stiches after the Jets player brought his stick up into Perry’s jaw as the two battled for a puck in front of Winnipeg’s net during the Jets’ 4-1 victory.
Jets fan, Kyle Klatt, started a Go Fund Me page on Saturday to raise the amount of the fine and donate it to the Christmas Cheer Board in Chairot’s name.
As of Sunday afternoon, more than $2,500 has been raised by 115 people.
