Flyers’ van Riemsdyk fined $5K for high-sticking
NEW YORK — Philadelphia Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk on Friday was fined $5,000 by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for high-sticking Los Angeles Kings defenseman Alec Martinez during Thursday’s game.
Van Riemsdyk was docked the maximum amount under the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
The high-sticking occurred just over one minute into the first period of the Flyers’ 3-2 shootout loss. Van Riemsdyk was not penalized.
