Islanders' Lee fined more than $2,200 for hit

NEW YORK (AP) Islanders forward Anders Lee has been fined $2,286 by the NHL for elbowing St. Louis Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson last weekend.

The play came at 7:15 of the second period during Saturday's 6-4 victory by the visiting Blues. Lee didn't draw a penalty.

The league said Tuesday the fine was the maximum allowable under the collective bargaining agreement. The money goes to the players' emergency assistance fund.
