The NHL on Saturday fined Colorado Avalanche forward Logan O’Connor and defenseman Kurtis MacDermid for their actions in the team’s regular-season finale against the Minnesota Wild.
O’Connor was fined $1,812.50 for cross-checking Wild defenseman Dmitry Kulikov during the first period of Colorado’s 4-1 loss on Friday night. MacDermid received a $2,187.50 fine for kneeing Minnesota forward Marcus Foligno later in the first period.
O’Connor received a minor penalty for boarding, while MacDermid was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for kneeing.
The fines were the maximum allowable under the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
The Central Division Avalanche (56-19-7, 119 points) will face off against the Nashville Predators (45-30-7, 97 points) in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
