Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson fined $2,000 for second diving call

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The NHL has fined Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson $2,000 as supplementary punishment for two embellishing calls against him.

The fine was announced on Thursday for Ekman-Larsson's actions in a pair of games the past two weeks.

Ekman-Larsson was issued the citation for an incident that occurred in the third period of Arizona's Nov. 3 game against Nashville, when he drew a minor penalty for interference to Predators forward Kevin Fiala.

Ekman-Larsson was issued a warning following an incident flagged by the NHL during a game at New Jersey on Oct. 25.
