It didn’t take the NHL’s Department of Player Safety long to penalize Tanner Glass.
The New York Rangers forward was fined $3,897.85 for hitting Boston Bruins defenceman Adam McQuaid with the butt end of his stick on Saturday afternoon.
The incident occurred in the final minutes of Boston’s 4-2 victory. The veteran forward was upset after he took a hard hit along the boards from Bruins defenceman Matt Bartkowski earlier in the period.
Glass was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct.
