The NHL Department of Player Safety announced on Sunday that Philadelphia Flyers center Derick Brassard was fined $2,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct against Washington Capitals right-wing Garnet Hathaway in the Flyers’ 2-1 win at Capital One Arena on Saturday.
After Hathaway glided over by the Flyers bench to go for a hit on defenseman Justin Braun, Brassard punched Hathaway up high when Hathaway was right in front of him.
