Flyers forward Garnet Hathaway fined by National Hockey League

Philadelphia Flyers forward Garnet Hathaway has found himself fined by the National Hockey League on Friday afternoon.

In a post on their Public Relations account on X, the National Hockey League announced that they've fined Flyers forward Garnet Hathaway $2,000 for diving during a game on March 23rd against the Boston Bruins.

"Philadelphia Flyers forward Garnet Hathaway has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced today."

The incident in question occurred with just under 12 minutes remaining in the third period of last Saturday's game. Boston Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark made a save and afterwards, Hathaway falls to the ice after being tangled up with Andrew Peeke. No penalty was called on the play by the officials.



Hathaway being fined by the National Hockey League for diving/embellishment means that this is his second citation of the 2023-24 season. The NHL gives players one warning regarding diving/embellishment before they hand out fines. The first fine is $2,000, second fine is $3,000, third fine is $4,000 and four or more fines each time result in a $5,000 fine to the player, as well as a fine for the team's head coach.

It's safe to say that going forward, Garnet Hathaway is going to a bit more careful and won't be diving, or else his wallet will be a little bit lighter.
