Jannik Hansen faced supplemental punishment for his hit on Tommy Wingels Tuesday night.
The NHL announced Wednesday that the Vancouver forward has been fined $5,000 for an illegal check to the head on San Jose’s Wingels. The fine is the maximum amount allowed under the collective bargaining agreement.
Hansen was assessed a two-minute penalty on the play.
Despite this transgression, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said Tuesday’s game was Hansen’s best of the season. He scored a goal and had four shots in 13:13 of ice time.
