Rangers' Lindgren fined for interference; Preds' Arvidsson fined for diving

Tim Tucker   ·   17 janvier 2020
The NHL's Department of Player Safety has decided to fine Ryan Lindgren of the New York Rangers the maximum allowable amount under the current CBA for what it called interference on the New York Islanders Jordan Eberle. The hit, which you can see below, will cost Lindgren $2,486.56. It happened with just under five minutes left in the second period during a scramble near the Rangers' net.



Who was selected in the first round of 2015 by the Oilers?
Connor McDavid
Dylan Strome
Leon Draisaitl
Ryan nugent hopkins
Taylor Hall
Zack Kassian


Eberle was placed into concussion protocol following the hit. He did, however, return for the third period. Isles coach Barry Trotz said following this game that he believes Lindgren "targeted" Eberle and called it a "dangerous" hit.

Lindgren received a two-minute penalty on the play for cross-checking. The Rangers would go on to win the game 3-2.



Meanwhile, Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment). It is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties.

Arvidsson was issued a warning following an incident flagged by NHL Hockey Operations during a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on December 27th. His second Citation, which triggered the $2,000 fine, was issued for an incident at 0:14 of the first period against the Boston Bruins on January 7th. Arvidsson (embellishment) and Bruins forward Brad Marchand (cross checking) received coincidental minor penalties on the play.

Should Lindgren have received a suspension for the hit on Eberle?
