Dallas forward Ryan Garbutt fined by NHL

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt was fined $1,474 - the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement - by the NHL on Saturday for spearing Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry in the groin Friday night.

Garbutt was given a major penalty for spearing and a game misconduct midway through the first period in the Stars' 6-2 loss at Anaheim.

"I was just coming back to the bench and got careless with my stick," Garbutt said.

"It was deliberate," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau countered. "It wasn't an accident. It was pretty dirty."

The Ducks lead the first-round playoff series 3-2.
