Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid has been fined US$5,000, the maximum allowed under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement, for elbowing Montreal Canadiens forward Jesperi Kotkaniemi on Tuesday night.

The incident occurred at 17:24 of the first period. McDavid was assessed a minor penalty for roughing.

The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
