New York Islanders forward Mathew Barzal has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement, by the league’s Department of Player Safety for high-sticking Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Tony DeAngelo.

The incident involving Barzal and D’Angelo occurred 2:59 into the second period of the Islander’s overtime loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday.

Barzal was handed a two-minute minor penalty for the infraction, one of his two penalties in the game.

This is the fourth fine Barzal has accrued in his career.

The money from Barzal’s fine will go to the Players’ Emergency Assist Fund.
