Artemi Panarin was fined the maximum allowed by the collective agreement, $ 5,000, for throwing a glove at Brad Marchand on Friday afternoon.
This was announced by the National Hockey League player safety department on Saturday morning, calling the gesture unsportsmanlike.

Panarin attacks Marchand… with his glove! –
While at the New York Rangers bench in the dying seconds of the game, Panarin swiped one of his gloves towards the Boston Bruins’ little plague, who was also standing at the bench.
The Russian was awarded a game misconduct penalty on the streak. The amount taken from Panarin’s pockets will go to the NHL Players Emergency Fund.
