Matthew Tkachuk Fined For High Stick

Tkachuk's stick, not his mouth got him in trouble with the league.

NHL: Nashville Predators at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

Matthew Tkachuk earned a nice $5000 fine from the NHL, but not for his barking at an official from a bench that earned him an Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty. He's 5k lighter in the wallet for a high stick during the Flames 4-3 OT loss to Dallas on Thursday night.

The league levied the highest possible fine for his infraction this afternoon for a stick that got up on John Klingberg.

Wonder if the league will act on the TWO high sticks Johnny Gaudreau took on one play?
