Stars’ Radek Faksa fined $5K for slashing Senators’ Tim Stützle

Dallas Stars forward Radek Faksa has been fined $5,000 for slashing Ottawa Senators forward Tim Stützle, the NHL’s department of player safety announced Monday.

The incident occurred during the second period of Sunday’s game between the Stars and Senaotrs, when Faksa and Stützle were battling off the faceoff. Faksa caught Stützle’s left wrist with a slash and the play went uncalled.

The 19-year-old left the ice hunched over in pain clutching his wrist and briefly left in the second period. Stützle would return for the third period and an X-ray on his wrist came back negative.
