Kings update: Doughty fined $2,500 for hit on Oshie


Kings' defenseman Drew Doughty escaped the full hammer of NHL justice, receiving a $2,500 fine and no suspension from the league on Wednesday morning.

The fine, which is the maximum allowed  under the collective bargaining agreement, was a result of Doughty's cross-checking St. Louis forward T.J. Oshie into the boards on Tuesday night in St. Louis near the end of the game. He received a two-minute minor penalty for cross-checking.

It looked as though Oshie injured his left shoulder from the hit, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that he would be in the lineup for Wednesday night's game at Pittsburgh against the Penguins.

Here is a video clip of the hit, which occurred with two seconds remaining in the game:
