Sharks D Marc-Edouard Vlasic fined for slashing Wild F Dany Heatley

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Sharks defenceman Marc-Edouard Vlasic has been fined for slashing Minnesota's Dany Heatley.

The NHL fined Vlasic $8,378.38 for the infraction at the end of Wednesday's 4-2 victory over the Wild.

Vlasic and Heatley were jostling in the closing seconds of the game. After Vlasic delivered a cross check, Heatley responded by swinging his stick at Vlasic. He missed and Vlasic retaliated and hit Heatley with his stick.

The Wild were upset after the game because Heatley was hurt. But the NHL says the injury came in the ensuing scrum and not from the slash.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
