The NHL announced Wednesday that San Jose Sharks LW Evander Kane has been fined for elbowing Washington Capitals defender Radko Gudas in the head during Tuesday night's game.
San Jose’s Evander Kane has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for Elbowing Washington’s Radko Gudas.— NHL Player Safety (@NHLPlayerSafety) December 4, 2019
Kane was fined $5,000, which is the maximum fine under the current collective bargaining agreement. The hit in question came toward the end of the third period of the Capitals' 5-2 win over the Sharks.
Kane raised his elbow and took a shot right at the face of Gudas, a hit that was angled away from even being a play for the puck.
