Brad Marchand is once again being forced to hand over a portion of his paycheck to the NHL.

The league announced on Friday afternoon that the Bruins forward has been fined $2,000 for diving and embellishment, meaning it is the second time this season that he has been flagged for such an incident.

The one that resulted in him getting the fine took place in the Bruins 8-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins last week. Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta was penalized for tripping on the play while Marchand was giving a matching minor for embellishment.

He was warned for a diving incident back in November against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Marchand has been fined or suspended eight times since the start of the 2011-12 season for actions taken against opponents, more than any other player in the NHL during that time. Those fines and suspensions have resulted in him forfeiting more than $714,000 in salary.

This is the first time he has ever been fined for embellishment.
