Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Mark Friedman has been fined $1,821.50, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for spearing Sean Kuraly of the Columbus Blue Jackets. 

Halfway through the first period, Kuraly knocked over Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry. Friedman retaliated spearing Kuraly and was given a five-minute penalty and a 10 minute game misconduct as he was tossed from the game. 

The Penguins won the game 4-3 in overtime.
