Stars’ Jamie Benn, Caps’ Evgeny Kuznetsov each fined $5K

The NHL fined the Dallas Stars’ Jamie Benn and the Washington Capitals’ Evgeny Kuznetsov $5,000 each on Sunday for high-sticking violations in Saturday’s playoff games.

The fines are the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement. Neither forward was penalized in their respective games.

Benn, 32, has not scored in the series. He had 46 points (18 goals, 28 assists) in 82 games in the regular season.

Kuznetsov was fined for high-sticking Florida Panthers forward Noel Acciari during the Capitals’ 6-1 home win in Game 3. Washington leads the first-round series 2-1 and hosts Game 4 on Monday night.
