The NHL Department of Player Safety has fined Vegas Golden Knights forward Max Pacioretty $2,500 for slashing Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat.

The incident happened late in Sunday's Game 4 while DeBrincat was scoring in an empty net to seal the 3-1 victory for Chicago. The Blackhawks trail the top seeded Golden Knights 3-1 in the opening round series.  

Pacioretty, 31, has yet to record a point so far in these playoffs.
