Ben Chiarot fined, not suspended, for bloodying Corey Perry

Ben Chiarot fined, not suspended, for bloodying Corey Perry

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry can pester with the best of them, but you still cant get away with butt-ending him in the face with your stick.

Well, you cant get away with such an action without ending up a little lighter in the wallet, at least. The NHLs Department of Player Safety deserved to fine, not suspend, Winnipeg Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot for the action you can witness in the video above.

Apparently this is the maximum fine allowable by the CBA for such an offense.

Credit TSNs Frank Seravalli for getting some gruesome details (under the top layer of skin? barf) about Perrys wound. There was no penalty on Chiarot, but Mark Scheifele ended up drawing a roughing call during the fracas, so that might boil down to semantics.
