Boston Bruins winger Taylor Hall has been fined $5,000 for roughing Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Ilya Lyubushkin.
The incident occurred in the second period of the Maple Leafs' 6-4 win over the Bruins on Tuesday night. Hall reacted to hit by Lyubushkin by getting up and punching the Leafs defenceman in the side of the head.
Hall received a two-minute penalty for roughing on the play, while Lyubushkin left the game and did not return for what the Maple Leafs called precautionary reasons.
The $5,000 fine is the maximum allowable under the CBA for Hall, who is in the first season of a four-year, $24 million deal.
The 30-year-old has 15 goals and 50 points in 66 games this season.
