Montreal defenceman Alexei Emelin fined for butt-ending Vancouver player

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has fined Montreal Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin $5,000 U.S. for butt-ending Vancouver Canucks forward Pascal Pelletier during Thursday's game in Montreal.

The incident occurred at 11:35 of the second period. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Emelin had an assist on Max Pacioretty's third goal of the game, which the Canadiens won, 5-2.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
