Rangers’ Artemi Panarin gets hit with maximum penalty for throwing gloves at Bruins’ Brad Marchand

Artemi Panarin, Rangers, Brad Marchand, Bruins

Instead of dropping the gloves, New York Rangers forward Artemi Panarin decided to hurl one at Boston Bruins star Brad Marchand near the end of Friday’s game at TD Garden. The two got misconducts from the officials, but that was not the end of it for Panarin, who’s got to shell out a hefty fine for his actions.

Via the Twitter account of the NHL’s Department of Player Safety:

NY Rangers’ Artemi Panarin has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for Unsportsmanlike Conduct during yesterday’s game with the Boston Bruins.

Well, it looks like it’s Panarin who’s dealt with a more painful blow between him and Marchand, at least from a financial standpoint. Marchand has made a living out of getting under the skins of opposing players, and he definitely succeeded in that against Panarin on Friday. Although five grand isn’t an amount you’d normally see on the couch, it’s relatively nothing for Panarin when considering the fact that he signed a seven-year deal worth $81.5 million with the Rangers back in 2019.

Panarin and the Rangers also got the last laugh in the game, with the 30-year-old left winger scoring a goal and recording an assist in a 5-2 road win over Marchand and the Bruins.
