Flyers’ van Riemsdyk fined $5,000 for high-sticking
NEW YORK (AP) — Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk has been fined $5,000 for high-sticking Kings defenseman Alec Martinez during Los Angeles’ 3-2 shootout win at Philadelphia.
The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced the fine on Friday. Van Riemsdyk was docked the maximum amount under the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
The high-sticking occurred just over one minute into the first period of Thursday night’s game. Van Riemsdyk was not penalized.
