NEW YORK -- Phoenix Coyotes forward Alexandre Bolduc has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for slew-footing San Jose Sharks forward Ryane Clowe during NHL Game #1126 in San Jose on Saturday, March 24, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 6:41 of the second period. A minor penalty for hooking was assessed on the play.
The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
