Buffalo Sabres defenseman Marco Scandella was fined $5,000 by the NHL for slashing Pittsburgh Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist during Tuesday's game.
Scandella, who was fined on Wednesday, was assessed a minor penalty for slashing after the incident occurred at 10:21 of the second period.
The fine is the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement.
Scandella has recorded four assists in 18 games with the Sabres this season, his first with the club. The 27-year-old Montreal native collected 27 goals, 66 assists and 158 penalty minutes in 391 career contests with the Minnesota Wild and Sabres.
