Phoenix Coyotes forward Shane Doan has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for boarding Flames defenseman Mark Giordano during Thursday's game in Calgary, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 7:49 of the first period. Doan was assessed a minor penalty for boarding on the play.
The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
