Edmonton Oilers' defenceman Darnell Nurse has been fined for interference, on a play that happened during Edmonton's 5-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday.

The NHL's department of player safety handed Nurse a US$5,000 penalty for the play, which saw the veteran blue liner lay a late hit on Vancouver's Kyle Burroughs in the final minute of the first period.
Burroughs went down hard in the corner but got up without any assistance. Nurse received a two-minute minor penalty for interference.
Here is the hit below:

Nurse was the third man in on the play. He made direct contact with the vulnerable player Burroughs. I feel Nurse got off easy with just a fine, there was no need to deliver the hit, the puck was already gone up the boards. This is the type of hit the league is trying to get out of the game.
