Senators' Karlsson fined $2,500 for slashing

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has fined Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson $2,500 for slashing Florida's Sean Bergenheim during a game over the weekend.

Karlsson received a minor penalty for the slash.

The $2,500 goes to the players' emergency assistance fund.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
