Brayden Schenn fined for cross-checking Versteeg

Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn was a little lighter in the pocket on Friday.

The National Hockey League fined him $2,230.777 US, the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement, for a cross-check against Chicago’s Kris Versteeg during Wednesday’s 7-2 loss.

Schenn, 22, cross-checked Versteeg, a one-time Flyers forward, with 6:35 left in the second period but wasn’t penalized.

Versteeg laid on the ice before skating off on his own while actively complaining to the referee.

Last Jan. 23, Schenn was suspended one game for charging New Jersey Devils defenceman Anton Volchenkov and forfeited $4,702.70 US in salary.

Combined with the lost salary for the Versteeg cross-check, Scheen has given $6,933.47 to the players’ emergency assistance fund.
