NEW YORK (AP) The NHL has fined Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri $5,000 for making a throat-slashing gesture at Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano earlier in the week.

Kadri was fined the maximum allowable under the league's collective bargaining agreement for making the inappropriate gesture.

Maple Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello said during a radio appearance Wednesday that the club had spoken to Kadri about the gesture.

The gesture came after Giordano's hard, open-ice hit on Kadri in the first period on Tuesday. Kadri was fined Thursday by the NHL.

Toronto visits the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.
