Kings wing Kyle Clifford fined by NHL for kneeing Oilers Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

Kings forward Kyle Clifford was fined $2,756.41 for kneeing Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of the Edmonton Oilers in the first period of Sunday’s game. Clifford was not penalized for the play, which happened at the 7-minute, 41-second mark of the Kings’ 2-1 shootout victory at Staples Center. Nugent-Hopkins needed assistance in returning to the Oilers’ bench, but returned to the game after a short stay in the dressing room. The fine is the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement and goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
