The Vancouver Canucks saw themselves come back from a 4-1 deficit to defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night in overtime, 5-4, but during the game, they got themselves into a bit of trouble.

In the third period, Vancouver Canucks defenceman Tyler Myers was handed a five-minute major and a game misconduct following an elbow to the face of Columbus Blue Jackets forward Sean Kuraly.

On Sunday, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced further discipline for Tyler Myers, handing him a $5,000 fine for the elbow on Kuraly.

"Vancouver's Tyler Myers has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for elbowing Columbus' Sean Kuraly."




Initially, the officials called a five-minute major on Ian Cole for boarding, but after a review, his penalty was rescinded and instead, Myers was tossed from the game, which drew the ire of many in the hockey world. It left many confused, not because of the elbow, but because it was thought that the officials aren't allowed to look at another incident while reviewing a the initial call on the play.
