Following a supplementary discipline hearing this morning, the NHL has announced that Columbus Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky has been fined $10,000 – the maximum allowed under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The hearing took place by phone, where Dubinsky was given an opportunity to explain this hit on Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi:
At the time, Dubinsky was given a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.
Per the league’s Department of Player Safety, the money Dubinsky pays will be given to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Dubi did not try to slow down or move to the side but went right for a hit into the boards.. fine is fine..but
I think a 3 game suspension should be in order.. supposed to be cracking down on boarding hits.. that
certaninly was one.
10k fine is a joke to a guy making over $4 million a year. Should be giving these guys game suspensions on top of it. 10k to the emergency fund should be an automatic, punishment should be on top of that for anyone making over 1.5 mil a year.
