Jake DeBrusk Fined $5,000 For Cross-Checking Scott Mayfield

BOSTON (CBS) -- Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk has been fined $5,000 for cross-checking Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield during Monday night's playoff game.

The fine is the maximum allowable amount as permitted by the CBA.

The NHL department of player safety made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

The hit came in the third period of the Islanders' 4-3 overtime win in Game 2 of the second-round series. Mayfield remained down for several moments after the cross-check, but no penalty was called.

DeBrusk was moved up to Boston's second line to replace the injured Craig Smith. He didn't record a point in his 19:32 of ice time, and he was credited with three shots on goal and three hits. He has two goals and one assist in seven playoff games this year, after scoring five goals and registering nine assists in 41 regular-season games.
