Clifford fined for hit on Nugent-Hopkins - LA Kings Insider

As reported by Mark Spector of Rogers Sportsnet, Kyle Clifford has been fined $2,756.41 for his first period hit on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Sunday evening. Nugent-Hopkins had to be helped off the ice but was uninjured and returned to play shortly after the hit.

Since the creation of the Department of Player Safety during the 2011 off-season, only one King has been suspended for an on-ice infraction. Dustin Brown received a two-game suspension for his hit on Jason Pominville during the Los Angeles-Minnesota game on April 23, 2013. Jordan Nolan was also fined for an un-penalized cross-check on Henrik Sedin during a Kings-Canucks game on March 23, 2013.

UPDATE: Clifford has, in fact, been fined $2,756.41 for his hit on Nugent-Hopkins.
