NEW YORK -- Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Ryan Murphy has been fined $2,213.68, the maximum permitted under the CBA, for clipping New York Rangers forward Derek Dorsett in NHL Game No. 205 in New York on Saturday, Nov. 2, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 13:36 of the second period. Murphy was assessed a minor penalty for clipping.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault made it clear after his team's 5-1 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night that he did not like Ryan Murphy's second-period hit on Derek Dorsett.
The rookie defenseman appeared to undercut Dorsett, upending him in a play that infuriated Dorsett's teammates and resulted in a clipping penalty.
"I mean, in my opinion, that's real dangerous," Vigneault said. "Any time you're going for knees, you're looking at career-ending injuries here."
Dorsett appeared to be OK after the hit, but that didn't seem to placate Vigneault.
"That was borderline very, very dangerous."
