Vancouver Canucks forward Micheal Ferland has been fined $5,000 for spearing Minnesota Wild winger Ryan Hartman during Sunday night's contest, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced Monday.

The play occurred in the third period when Ferland got tangled up with the Wild's bench. He was assessed a two-minute minor for slashing and Minnesota received a minor bench penalty for interference, which Hartman served.

Wild forward Luke Kunin also received a $1,000 fine for unsportsmanlike conduct for holding Ferland's stick.

This is the first time Ferland has received supplemental discipline from the league over his six-year career.

The Wild stymied the Canucks for a 3-0 victory, taking a 1-0 lead in their best-of-five play-in series.
