Connor McDavid lost his cool Tuesday night as the Montreal Canadiens clobbered the Oilers 4-0 and he took it out on Montreal’s Jesperi Kotkaniemi in the form of an elbow to the head.

Today the NHL player safety department has announced they have fined Connor McDavid $5,000 for the Elbowing incident. Connor McDavid makes twelve million dollars a year, figure that one out.
Edmonton’s Connor McDavid has been fined $5,000, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for Elbowing Montreal’s Jesperi Kotkaniemi.

McDavid will likely find the money in his couch cushions to pay the fine and not think twice about the incident.
Here are some reactions to the fine:
McDavid makes roughly $75K per day https://t.co/LrCwQe9Bk9

I know it’s the max allowable under the CBA but I like playing this game:
McDavid makes $12,500,000 against the cap. The equivalent fine for somebody making $50k would be $20 lol. https://t.co/qlVUXxF1g9
