Los Angeles Kings winger Jordan Nolan received a $1,436.94 fine for cross-checking Henrik Sedin during Saturday’s 1-0 Canucks win.

(PHT will add video of the infraction if it becomes available.)

That fine might seem a little odd, but it adheres to the CBA’s rules that a player can be fined a maximum of a) $10K or b) half of his daily salary. (Nolan clearly received Plan B.)

This is the 23-year-old forward’s first offense. He didn’t receive a penalty for the incident and it doesn’t appear that Sedin was injured.

    The cross check was so dangerous they had no penalty on the play and no one has video of it? That’s NHL justice.

      If you actually saw the cross check it was pretty nasty. The fact that he wasn’t penalized is the questionable bit…not the fine.

    Ray you need to just watch the replay that is all over the place. They have played it on Sportsnet 2 times now.
    If you come close to thinking it wasn’t a stupid stick play then you’re blind

    So, that was Henrik Sedin?

    It’s funny that trying to skate by a goalie gets you 2 games, but cross-checking a player that is down on the ice gets you a fine that basically amount to tip change for player.

    So Nolan was fined for this but Nash’s hit deserved no supplemental discipline? I just don’t get it.

    Nobody gets it. That’s why we get all the cute video explanations broken down frame by frame. Oh, common sense, how I miss you.
