NHL fines Sabres goalie Neuvirth $2,000 for diving, embellishment against Predators @NHLdotcom

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The NHL has fined Buffalo Sabres goalie Michal Neuvirth $2,000 for diving and embellishment after drawing a penalty in a game against the Nashville Predators last weekend.

The disciplinary action announced on Wednesday was a second offence for Neuvirth. The first offence merited a warning, and occurred during a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 15.

Fines increase with each instance up to $5,000 following a fifth offence.

The punishment came after the league's Hockey Operations Department reviewed an interference penalty called against Nashville's Mike Santorelli early in the second period of the Predators' 2-1 shootout win.

In a separate move, Buffalo returned rookie defenceman Jake McCabe to AHL Rochester. The Sabres had the day off, and host Vancouver on Thursday.
