NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for cross-checking St. Louis forward T.J. Oshie in NHL Game No. 298 Tuesday night in St. Louis, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 19:58 of the third period. A minor penalty for cross-checking was assessed on the play.
The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
