PANTHERS HEAD COACH FINED $25,000 BY THE NHL

JAN 19, 2023  (15H09)      JON
Florida Panthers head coach Paul Maurice was fined $25,000 by the NHL on Thursday for his outburst on Tuesday night.

Maurice was furious about the NHL's officiating in Tuesday night's loss to Toronto and let his feelings be made public. Hence, the fine.


"Radko Gudas hits as a clean a hit as you can level -- stick on stick, body on body," said Maurice following the game. "A charge? They're both going in the same direction. No problem with the guys going to the net at all. That's hockey."


"I don't know what those guys were doing out there, but it wasn't Florida Panther friendly," said Maurice of the officiating."


Maurice indicated that the officiating had nothing to do with the game and more to do with a prior history between him and a certain official. This is probably where the NHL took exception; a coach openly questioning the integrity of league officials.

Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe and Nashville Predators head coach John Hynes were the last two coaches to be suspended - each for $25,000. At least the NHL is consistent in that regard.
