Arizona Coyotes forward Nick Schmaltz has been fined $5,000 for boarding Radim Simek of the San Jose Sharks, the NHL’s department of player safety announced on Saturday.

Midway through Friday’s matchup against the Sharks, Schmaltz pushed Simek into the boards as the two were fighting for a loose puck.

Shortly after Schmaltz was issued a boarding penalty for the hit on Simek.

On the year, the Coyotes forward has appeared in 34 games and capped off 19 points on the season thus far.
