Habs' Emelin fined $5K for butt-ending Pelletier

The SportsXchange

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin was fined $5,000 for butt-ending Vancouver Canucks forward Pascal Pelletier during a game in Montreal on Thursday, the league announced Friday.

The incident, which went unpenalized, occurred at 11:35 of the second period.

This is the second time this season the NHL reviewed a play involving Emelin, with the 6-foot-2, 225 pound defenseman avoiding supplemental discipline after hitting Flyers forward Steve Downie in the head earlier this season.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
