NHL Player Safety announced fines Friday for forwards Evander Kane of the Edmonton Oilers and Colton Sissons of the Nashville Predators.

Kane drew a $5,000 fine for kneeing Los Angeles Kings defenseman Sean Durzi at 4:23 of the second period in the Oilers’ 3-2 road win Thursday night. It’s the maximum allowable fine under the collective bargaining agreement.

Kane, 30, who received a two-minute penalty, has 29 points (16 goals, 13 assists) in 33 games this season.

Sissons was fined $2,500 for spearing Ottawa Senators forward Josh Norris during the closing seconds of the third period during Nashville’s 3-2 road win Thursday night. They were battling for the puck when Sissons appeared to hit Norris in the stomach with his stick.

Sissons, 28, did not draw a penalty. He has 27 points (six goals, 21 assists) in 67 games this season.
