NEW YORK (AP) The NHL has fined three players for diving/embellishment, including a combined $5,000 penalty against Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri for being a multiple offender.

Kadri was cited Friday for three separate instances over a seven-week span. The first drew a warning, and occurred against New Jersey on Feb. 4. The second happened against Ottawa on March 12, and triggered a $2,000 fine. He was cited a third time during a game against Calgary on March 21, which led to a $3,000 fine.

A fourth citation draws a $4,000 fine and each following would cost $5,000 apiece.

Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal and Oilers forward Nail Yakupov were each fined $2,000 for separate minor penalties for embellishment in Arizona's game at Edmonton on March 12.
