Oilers F Draisaitl gets $5K fine for dangerous trip on Horvat


Edmonton Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl was fined $5,000 on Tuesday for a dangerous trip on New York Islanders centre Bo Horvat.

Draisaitl received a two-minute minor for the trip on Horvat in the second period of the Oilers' 4-1 win on Monday night. He appeared to cross-checks Horvat's leg as players fought for the puck along the boards.

The 28-year-old has six goals and 19 points in 14 games with the Oilers this season while picking up 22 penalty minutes.

The $5,000 fine is the maximum allowable for Draisaitl, who carries a cap hit of $8.5 million through next season.
