Predators' P.K. Subban fined $2,000 for embellishment

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban has been fined $2,000 for embellishment after taking a hit from St. Louis Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson during their Western Conference semifinal.

Subban and Edmundson had received offsetting minor penalties after the incident that took place May 2 during Game 4 of the series won by Nashville. Subban received a $2,000 fine because this was his second citation. NHL officials had given Subban a warning after an incident during a Jan. 22 game with the Minnesota Wild.

The NHL's operations department tracks all games and issues citations when it determines that a player warrants a sanction.

The money from Subban's fine will go the NHL players' emergency assistance fund.

Nashville will be facing either the Anaheim Ducks or Edmonton Oilers in the Western Conference finals.
