The NHL has fined Montreal Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin.
It's a $5,000 U.S. fine for butt-ending Vancouver Canucks forward Pascal Pelletier during Thursday's game in Montreal.
The incident occurred at 11:35 of the second period.
No penalty was assessed on the play.
Emelin had an assist on Max Pacioretty's third goal of the game, which the Canadiens won, 5-2.
