Arizona Coyotes Forward Fined By NHL

The NHL has handed out a fine on Friday as Arizona Coyotes forward Clayton Keller has been fined $5000 for a cross check to Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Brannstrom.

Keller received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for his nasty cross check. Keller isn't the type of player you see normally playing this way and this was certainly out of character.

So far in 41 games this season, the 24-year-old Keller has recorded 37 points and continues to be one of the best players on a struggling Coyotes team.
