The NHL's Department of Player Safety has fined Calgary Flames forward Blake Coleman $5,000 for slew-footing Winnipeg Jets' forward Pierre-Luc Dubois.

Coleman received a two-minute penalty for tripping on the play. The fine amount is the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement.

The 30 years old, has collected one goal, four points and 14 penalty minutes in 14 games this season. The Flames won Saturday's game 3-2, ending a seven-game losing streak.
Slewfooting has become a point of contention in the league recently. With the league cracking down on head contact it appears more dirty players have shifted to the slewfoot as their infraction of choice. The move is extremely dangerous and can cause serious knee injuries, like the one suffered by Sammy Blais last season.
Blais blew out his knee after sustaining a slewfoot from noted slewfooter, PK Subban last season.
