NEW YORK -- Columbus Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky has been fined $10,000, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for boarding Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi in NHL Game #131 in Columbus on Tuesday, February 5, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 11:29 of the second period. Dubinsky was assessed a major penalty for boarding and game misconduct.
The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
