Coyotes' Doan $2,500 by NHL for boarding

NEW YORK (AP) - Phoenix Coyotes forward Shane Doan has been fined $2,500 by the NHL on Friday for boarding Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano during a game.

The fine, the maximum allowed under the league's collective bargaining agreement, was a result of Doan's actions at 7:49 of the first period of Phoenix's 4-1 loss Thursday night at Calgary. Doan was assessed a minor penalty for boarding on the play.

The money collected for the fine goes to the NHL's players' emergency assistance fund.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
