New York Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba was fined $5,000 by the NHL on Sunday for slashing during Saturday night's game against the St. Louis Blues.
The fine, which is the maximum allowed, came after an incident at the end of the Blues' 5-2 victory. Trouba received a five-minute major and a 10-minute game misconduct.
Trouba used his stick to hack multiple times at the legs of St. Louis' Vince Dunn as the players circled around the Rangers' goal, eventually leading to a fight between the defensemen. Dunn received two-minute minor for roughing.
Trouba has 0.80 penalty minutes per game in 44 games this season, the second highest mark of his career after his 0.90 in 2016-17. He has six goals and 15 assists while averaging 23:04 of ice time.
