Stars owner fined for damaging fish habitat

KAMLOOPS, British Columbia (AP) Dallas Stars owner Tom Gaglardi was fined $140,000 on Friday for polluting a lake during renovations on his Kamloops vacation property.

Gaglardi was found guilty on two counts of harmful alteration of a fish habitat for work done in 2010.

Gaglardi also owns the Western Hockey League's Kamloops Blazers and heads Northland Properties, which was convicted on the same charges. His father, Robert Gaglardi, was found not guilty.

Gaglardi refused to comment after sentencing Friday. Northland Properties lawyer Rob Toor said it's too early to say whether an appeal will be filed.
