Blackhawks' Mayers fined for shooting at Wings net in warmups

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Blackhawks forward Jamal Mayers was fined Monday for his actions during warmups before Game 5 at the United Center on Saturday. TSN's Darren Dreger reported that it was a $1,600 fine -- half a day's pay. Mayers, who has been a healthy scratch throughout the playoffs, fired a handful of pucks from his end of the ice down at the Red Wings net, through Detroit players.

"I was trying to get under their skin," Mayers told reporters following Monday's morning skate. "The league fined me and took the appropriate action. I'll pay the piper."
