Vancouver Canucks forward Micheal Ferland has been fined $5,000 for spearing Ryan Hartman of the Minnesota Wild Sunday night, NHL Player Safety announced Monday.

It is the maximum monetary penalty allowed under the current collective bargaining agreement.

During Minnesota's 3-0 victory Sunday night, Ferland's stick was grabbed by a member of the Wild and Ferland responded with a spear.

Ferland was also involved in a fight with Minnesota's Marcus Foligno Sunday night.

In 14 games with the Canucks this season, the 28-year-old had one goal and four assists.

Meanwhile, NHL Player Safety also announced the Luke Kunin of the Wild has been fined $1,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct against Vancouver.

The two teams will be in action once again on Tuesday evening.
