Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed that Nathan Horton was fined following an incident with a fan, according to CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty.

“Peter Chiarelli confirmed that Nathan Horton was fined by the #NHL for tossing the water bottle at a fan in Tampa Bay in Game 6,” he tweeted.

Horton allegedly squirted water and then threw a water bottle at a fan after Game 6.

Damian Cristodero notes on his Twitter that:

NHL’s Bill Daly said league was able to establish “additional facts” in deciding to fine Nathan Horton for water bottle incident.

Daly had originally stated the league didn’t expect to discipline Horton for the incident. Video posted here.

Translated:  We ignored the facts until now so we didn’t have to suspend him for Game 7, and since he has played a game since, we’ll just fine him.
