NEW YORK -- Winnipeg Jets defenseman Mark Stuart has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for his late hit on Washington Capitals forward Marcus Johansson during NHL Game #1061 in Winnipeg on Friday, March 16, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 8:41 of the first period. No penalty was assessed on the play.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
