Rinaldo Fined $5K For Two Incidents Today

NEW YORK (February 4, 2012)—Philadelphia Flyers center Zac Rinaldo has been fined a total of $5,000 as a result of two separate incidents during NHL Game No. 768 against the New Jersey Devils Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

Rinaldo was fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for his late hit on Devils center Jacob Josefson at 12:51 of the second period. Rinaldo received a minor penalty for interference.

Rinaldo also was fined the maximum $2,500 for his dangerous trip of Devils left wing Zach Parise after the whistle at 11:38 of the third period. No penalty was assessed on the play.

You can watch the trip here if you missed it earlier.

Why do they insist on calling it a “dangerous trip?”  It’s not like Rinaldo took Parise on a safari.

rinaldo is a coward.  this guy has to be one of the dirtiest players in the game.  Still have no idea why he was not punished for the elbow to the head of Burtuzzo.

Because there are these things you can get called “concussions”.  Perhaps you’ve heard of them?  Slew foots are quit dangerous because there’s no time to react.
