Last night in the late night game between the Vancouver Canucks and the San Jose Sharks, Nils Hoglander was ejected during the second period. On the play Hoglander slewfooted Kevin Lebanc to the ice near the boards.

On the play Hoglander forcibly throws Labanc down to the ice and Labanc falls awkwardly to the ice. Immediately the referees arm went up in the air. Hoglander was given a 5 minute major and a game misconduct for intent to injure.
A slewfoot is one of the most dangerous plays in the league and leaves players open to a variety of injuries. In the past we've seen slewfoots lead to both head and leg injuries, some of which have ended seasons.
Today George Parros and the NHL DoPS made the decision to give Hoglander the equivalent to a slap on the wrist.
Vancouver's Nils Hoglander has been fined $2,864.58, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for Slew-footing San Jose's Kevin Labanc.

This continues to just show how little Parros cares about player safety. When a play like this results in a $2800 fine, it just shows player safety is an after thought.
