The NHL fined Calgary forward Blake Coleman $5,000 on Sunday for slew-footing Pierre-Luc Dubois of the Winnipeg Jets.

The incident occurred at the 18:33 mark of the first period in the Flames’ 3-2 home win over the Jets on Saturday.

Coleman was assessed a two-minute penalty for tripping. The fine amount is the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement.

Coleman, 30, has collected one goal, three assists and 14 penalty minutes in 14 games this season.

A two-time Stanley Cup winner, Coleman has 163 points (88 goals, 75 assists) in 396 career games with the New Jersey Devils, Tampa Bay Lightning and Flames.
