The NHL Department of Player Safety announced the fine, initially reported by Sportsnet‘s Elliotte Friedman, Monday morning.
The fine means no suspension for Ferland.
During a brief scuffle with players on the Wild bench midway through the third period of Sunday’s game, Ferland speared Minnesota’s Ryan Hartman in the mid-section in retaliation after Minnesota’s Luke Kunin grabbed his stick from the bench.
Ferland and Hartman were penalized at the time of the infraction: Ferland was issued two minutes for slashing, while Hartman got an interference penalty. Kunin did not receive a penalty at the time, but was fined Monday for his role in the fracas.
It was Ferland’s third trip to the penalty box in what was a heated opening matchup between the two clubs. He dropped the gloves with Minnesota’s Marcus Foligno less than two minutes into the game, with each player earning himself a five-minute fighting penalty. Ferland also served a too-many-men call in the second period.
The matchup was Ferland’s first since Dec. 10. He was placed on the Canucks’ long term injured reserve on Dec. 14 after experiencing concussion-related symptoms.
