NEW YORK (AP) New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall has been fined $5,000 for a boarding penalty against Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo.

The NHL announced the fine on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the Devils beat the Sabres 3-1 on Tuesday night.

The incident occurred at 7:40 of the first period. Hall was assessed a minor penalty for boarding.

The fine is the maximum allowable under the current collective bargaining agreement. The money goes to the players’ emergency assistance fund.
