Toronto tough guy Wayne Simmonds has been fined $2,250 for cross-checking Winnipeg Jets forward Jansen Harkins.
The cross-check came at 7:25 of the third period during Sunday’s game in Winnipeg. Just prior to a neutral zone faceoff, Simmons tripped up Harkins then cross-checked him in the back.
Simmonds was given a minor penalty for cross-checking by referees Brad Meier and Reid Anderson, along with a ten-minute misconduct. After serving his time, Simmonds returned to the ice and promptly picked up an additional four minutes in penalties before the final buzzer.
