NHL fines Florida defenseman Mike Matheson for diving/embellishment

 

NEW YORK (April 6, 2018) — Florida Panthers defenseman Mike Matheson has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced this week.

Mike Matheson

 

NHL Rule 64 is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. Fines are assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale outlined below:

 

Citation #    Player Fine(s)   * Head Coach Fine(s)

1           Warning              N/A

2           $2,000                N/A

3           $3,000                N/A

4           $4,000                N/A

5           $5,000                $2,000

6           $5,000                $3,000

7           $5,000                $4,000

8           $5,000                $5,000

 

For head coaches, each FINE issued to a player on his club counts toward his total. Four FINES issued to one player or a club collectively results in the head coach receiving his first fine.

 

Citations are issued by the National Hockey League Hockey Operations Department, which tracks all games, logs all penalties for diving or embellishment, and flags all plays not called on the ice that in its opinion were deserving of such a penalty. A Citation is issued once Hockey Operations, through its internal deliberations, is convinced that a player warrants sanction.

 

Matheson was issued a Warning following an incident flagged by NHL Hockey Operations during NHL Game No. 647 against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 7. His second Citation, which triggered the $2,000 fine, was issued for an incident at 15:53 of the third period during NHL Game No. 1193 against the Ottawa Senators on March 29.

 

The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
