New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall has been fined $5,000 US for a boarding penalty against Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo.
The NHL announced the fine Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the Devils beat the Sabres 3-1 on Tuesday night.
The incident occurred at 7:40 of the first period. Hall was assessed a minor penalty for boarding.
New Jersey’s Taylor Hall fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for boarding Buffalo’s Kyle Okposo.
