In the heat of the game, tempers and emotions can get the better of a player. In this case, a Tampa Bay Lightning player had to pay the price to the NHL.

It may be a good thing this didn’t wind up with Mikhail Sergachev getting a suspension. In Thursday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks, there was a play near the net that wound up with a punch being thrown. It happened in the final minute of play with no penalty being called at the time.

The $5,000 will go to the NHL Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. This was the highest fine allowed under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.
