Flames defenceman Mark Giordano hit with max fine of $10,000 for slew footing

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Calgary Flames defenceman Mark Giordano was fined $10,000 by the NHL on Tuesday for his slew foot on Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel.

The incident occurred midway through the second period of Calgary's 4-3 win at Dallas on Sunday. Giordano was assessed a minor penalty for tripping on the play.

The fine is the maximum allowed under the new collective bargaining agreement. Because Giordano is a first-time offender, the fine was the lesser of $10,000 or one-half of his daily salary.

The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
