The fine is the maximum allowable under the CBA.
The incident occurred late in Monday’s 6-2 win by the Canucks. With the score out of reach, Roussel was knocked to the ice by Weber in front of the Predators net. Roussel responded by cross-checking Weber twice and slashing him once before Predators defenceman Jarred Tinordi stepped in.
As the officials intercepted Roussel and Tinordi, Roussel tossed his stick into the crowd, where it was caught by a fan. You can watch the full incident in the video at the top of this page.
Roussel was assessed a two-minute minor for slashing, two minute minor for cross-checking and a 10-minute misconduct. Tinordi was given a 10-minute misconduct.
The money from the fine will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund, the NHL said in a statement.
