Flyers' Hathaway punished

for Hit on Blue Jackets' Werenski

The Philadelphia Flyers' Garnet Hathaway has received a $5,000 fine, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), for a kneeing incident involving Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski.

Werenski, who suffered a quad contusion due to the hit, is expected to be sidelined for 1-2 weeks. Hathaway's actions have drawn NHL Player Safety's attention, resulting in the fine.




The incident highlights the NHL's commitment to maintaining player safety and addressing infractions on the ice.


Meanwhile, the Blue Jackets have placed Werenski on Injured Reserve and recalled defenseman David Jiricek from the AHL's Cleveland Monsters.
