Florida Panthers defenceman Mike Matheson has been fined $2,500 for high-sticking New York Islanders centre Brock Nelson.
The incident occurred in the first period of the Islanders’ 4-2 win on Tuesday. Matheson was given a double-minor penalty on the play.
The money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. The Islanders lead the series 2-0 with Game 3 scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
