Nyc — Philadelphia Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk on Friday was fined $5,000 by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for high-sticking La Kings defenseman Alec Martinez during Thursday’s game.

Van Riemsdyk was docked the level under the league’s collective bargaining agreement.

The high-sticking happened just over a minute into the initial phase of the Flyers’ 3-2 shootout loss. Van Riemsdyk was not penalized.
