Detroit Red Wings forward Darren Helm has been fined $5,000 for slashing Calgary Flames forward Elias Lindholm on Thursday night, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced.

Helm and Lindholm went at it throughout a third-period shift. The back-and-forth culminated with Lindholm elbowing Helm up high before Helm responded by two-handing Lindholm in the back of the leg.

Helm was ejected from the contest, while Lindholm received an interference minor.

Lindholm left the game and didn't return. Calgary head coach Bill Peters offered no update on the right winger's condition postgame.
