Panthers’ Keith Yandle fined

Florida Panthers defenseman Keith Yandle has been fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment.

He was penalized under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment).

NHL Rule 64 is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. Fines are assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale outlined below:

Citation # — Player Fine(s) — * Head Coach Fine(s)
1 — Warning — N/A
2 — $2,000 — N/A
3 — $3,000 — N/A
4 — $4,000 — N/A
5 — $5,000 — $2,000
6 — $5,000 — $3,000
7 — $5,000 — $4,000
8 — $5,000 — $5,000

* For head coaches, each FINE issued to a player on his club counts toward his total. Four FINES issued to one player or a club collectively results in the head coach receiving his first fine.

Yandle has 3 goals and 24 assists, for 27 points in 52 games this season. This was his second citation, which triggered the $2,000 fine.

The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
