Florida Panthers centre Joe Thornton was fined $1,875 on Wednesday for slashing Tampa Bay Lightning forward Boris Katchouk.

Thornton was assessed a two-minute penalty for slashing in the first period of the Panthers 4-1 win over the Lightning on Tuesday.

The fine is the maximum allowable under the CBA for Thornton, who joined the Panthers on a one-year, $750,000 contract this off-season.

The 42-year-old is without a point in three games with the Panthers this season.
