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.
We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
