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.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
