NEW YORK -- Montreal Canadiens forward Lars Eller has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for boarding Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty in NHL Game No. 372 on Saturday, Dec. 3, in Los Angeles, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 4:48 of the first period. A minor penalty for boarding was assessed on the play.
The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
