Taylor Hall is going to have to cough up a chunk of change.
Lyubushkin hit Hall from behind, and Hall didn’t take too kindly to it before getting up and punching Lyubushkin in the side of the head. Lyubushkin fell to the ice and did not return to the game.
Hall was given a two-minute penalty for roughing.
The $5,000 fine is the maximum allowable under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement.
