Today the NHL has done a bit of course correcting as they have further punished Jacob Trouba. This time he has received a $5,000 fine which is the maximum allowable to a player.
NY Rangers' Jacob Trouba has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for elbowing Florida's Evan Rodrigues.
