NHL fines New York Rangers $250,000

NEW YORK (May 6, 2021) – The National Hockey League announced today that the New York Rangers have been fined $250,000 for their public comments on Tuesday, May 4.

“Public comments of the nature issued by the Rangers that were personal in nature and demeaning of a League executive will not be tolerated,” said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. “While we don’t expect our Clubs to agree with every decision rendered by the Department of Player Safety, the extent to which the Rangers expressed their disagreement was unacceptable. It is terribly unfair to question George Parros’ professionalism and dedication to his role and the Department of Player Safety.”
