NHL Public Relations

NEW YORK – Detroit Red Wings forward Teemu Pulkkinen has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced today.

NHL Rule 64 is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. Fines are assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale outlined below:

Citation# Player Fine(s) * Head Coach Fine(s)
1 $2,000 N/A
2 $3,000 N/A
3 $4,000 N/A
4 $5,000 N/A
5 $5,000 $2,000
6 $5,000 $3,000
7 $5,000 $4,000
8 $5,000 $5,000
* For Head Coach, each FINE issued to a player on his Club counts toward total.

Citations are issued by the National Hockey League Hockey Operations Department, which tracks all games, logs all penalties for diving or embellishment and flags all plays not called on the ice that in its opinion were deserving of such a penalty. A Citation is issued once Hockey Operations, through its internal deliberations, is convinced that a player warrants sanction.

Lundqvist is perfect pie-stopper on 'Tonight Show'

Thursday, 11.12.2015 / 12:34 PM / News

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's puck-stopping ability has helped him win a Vezina Trophy, an Olympic gold medal and play in three NHL All-Star Games.

So how hard could it for him to stop miniature pumpkin pies?

"Piece of cake," Lundqvist said during an appearance Wednesday on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on NBC.

Fallon had 10 seconds to try to shoot as many pies as he could past Lundqvist. The Rangers goaltender, who has a .949 save percentage in 12 NHL games, had a shutout against Fallon. And they weren't all easy saves; Lundqvist had to stretch to make a low glove save on the first pie, then react quickly to make a head-high blocker save on the second shot.

Quote of the Day

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.
