Edmonton Oilers defenceman Tom Gilbert has been fined $2,500 - the maximum allowed under the CBA, according to The Edmonton Journal.

The fine was handed down as a result of his hit to the head of Flames forward Matt Stajan in Calgary's 5-3 win Saturday night.

Gilbert drew an interference penalty on the play, while Stajan was not injured and finished the game.

Stajan was appearing in only his second game since the pre-season due to a separated shoulder. He centred the top line with Jerome Iginla and Alex Tanguay and had three assists in his efforts; the top line combined for eight points.
