In a contentious matchup between the Boston Bruins and the Washington Capitals, defenseman Matt Grzelcyk found himself at the center of controversy.

During Saturday night's game, Grzelcyk was ejected for spearing Capitals player Max Pacioretty, prompting scrutiny from both fans and officials.

The NHL announces that Matt Grzelcyk has been fined $5,000 for spearing Max Pacioretty during Saturday's game.




Following the incident, the NHL swiftly took action, announcing Grzelcyk's punishment for his actions. The league levied a $5,000 fine against Grzelcyk for the spearing incident, sparking debate over the severity of the penalty.

However, the relatively light fine imposed on Grzelcyk raises questions about consistency within the NHL's Player Safety Department. With past suspensions often carrying more substantial consequences, the disparity in punishments leaves fans and analysts perplexed. As discussions surrounding player safety continue, the league faces mounting pressure to address inconsistencies in disciplinary measures.
