The National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety has levied a fine against a Calgary Flames forward for conduct in Saturday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets. Per a league release, Blake Coleman has been fined $5,000 for slew-footing Jets forward Pierre-Luc Dubois.
The incident occurred late in the first period. Dubois was called for holding Coleman as he attempted to get to the net-front area, but Coleman also took down Dubois in the process and was called for tripping on the same play. The play was reviewed – pretty much everything is reviewed by Player Safety following a game – and the league determined that Coleman’s actions merited additional discipline.
