Lightning rookie right wing Richard Panik was suspended two games by the league for his from-behind hit Tuesday on Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner.
Panik will forfeit $7,589.74, which will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Alzner was not injured on the play with 4:29 left in the second period, and Panik was given a five-minute major penalty for boarding on which the Capitals scored twice.
The NHL ruled Alzner was in a "vulnerable position" and "at a dangerous distance from the boards" when he was hit, causing "a violent collision with the boards."
Panik said Tuesday that it was a "bad penalty."
"I should take a couple more strides and hit him clean and everything will be okay," Panik said. "Hopefully, it will never happen again."
