Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson is going to have a lighter wallet today.
Karlsson was fined $2,500 for his slash on Florida’s Sean Bergenheim on Sunday. Swedes and Finns not getting along? Why, I never. As you should know by now, $2,500 is the maximum amount allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
For Karlsson it’s the first time he’s been rung up by the league for doing something dastardly. Now that he’s got a record, he’ll have the ever-watchful eye of the league watching him closer for misdeeds. Bergenheim was not hurt on the play.
Given the Karlsson seems like the least likely player to do something dirty, you’d like to think we won’t be hearing from him again anytime soon.
