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.
