The NHL levied $5,000 fines against Montreal’s Jonathan Drouin and Phillip Danault of the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday, the maximum fine allowed under the CBA.

Danault was fined for a dangerous trip on Tampa Bay’s Brayden Point. Drouin incurred his penalty for cross-checking Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars.

Drouin received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the cross-check to Seguin’s head/neck area in Tuesday night’s game, won by the Habs. Drouin tallied an assist before being ejected. He has 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) on the season.

Danault was fined for his trip in the Kings’ loss to the Lightning, also Tuesday night. He has 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) in 38 games this season.
