Blue Jackets F Dubinsky fined, not suspended
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky was fined $10,000 Wednesday, the maximum allowed under the new NHL collective bargaining agreement, for boarding Los Angeles defenseman Rob Scuderi in Columbus' 4-2 loss to the Kings on Tuesday. He will not be suspended.
The incident occurred at 11:29 of the second period, and set off a rash of penalties. Not long after, Dubinsky and Los Angeles forward Mike Richards fought. All told, 37 minutes in penalties were handed out, and Dubinsky was assessed a major penalty for the original incident, as well as a game misconduct.
The fine money will be sent to the NHL players' emergency assistance fund.
