NEW YORK – Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Jake McCabe and Edmonton Oilers forward Evander Kane were among the players issued fines by the NHL on Friday.

McCabe was fined the maximum of US$5,000 allowable under the NHL/NHL Players’ Association collective bargaining agreement for cross-checking Boston forward Brad Marchand in the first period of the Bruins 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs on Thursday.

The hit at 3:53 of the first period came moments after McCabe had been assessed an interference penalty for a hit on Jake DeBrusk. He was not penalized for the cross-check on Marchand.

Bruins defenceman Charlie Coyle was also fined $5,000 for a cross-check on Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bertuzzi at 4:56 of the second period. Coyle was assessed a minor penalty for high-sticking.

Kane was fined $2,500 for unsportsmanlike conduct for an incident involving Blue Jackets forward Cole Sillinger 46 seconds into the second period of the Oilers’ 4-2 loss at Columbus on Thursday.

Kane was not penalized on the play.
