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

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
