Hurricanes' Ryan Murphy Fined for Clipping

NEW YORK – Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Ryan Murphy has been fined $2,213.68, the maximum permitted under the CBA, for clipping New York Rangers forward Derek Dorsett in NHL Game No. 205 in New York on Saturday, Nov. 2, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.

The incident occurred at 13:36 of the second period. Murphy was assessed a minor penalty for clipping.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Seeing how suspensions have been handed out he should consider himself lucky he just got fined.

The guy in my avatar would just laugh about this fine. Seems like everything is a fine or suspension this season. Laughable. Just play without refs and penalties already and hand out suspensions and fines after the games.

Low hit but adding a fine to it was ridiclous, I'm shocked DD didn't beat the stuffing out of him.

Good. Dirty hit and I f*cking hate hits like this. I love hip checks but any hit where you have to fall on all 4's like a b*tch and aim for your opponent's knees has no place in the game. I wish Dorsett was able to get free and fill him in

given he makes contact low, Murphy is maybe 5'10". A high hit wasn't exactly an option. Looks like an epic hip check to me, but I can see the gray area.

Looked like a hockey play to me, but since it evoked an emotional response from the other team the league had to squash it. wouldn't want to have any emotion going on in the game would we?

How tall is Dorsett, 6' at best? Height is not really an excuse for a cheap hit. Throwing a clean hip check is a work of art but launching yourself at a player's knees while on your hands and knees is horsesh*t

The problem is Murphy cut Dorsett down at the knees. A legal hip check makes contact hip to quads, ie above the knees.

The fine is a cash grab though.

Given the reminder that Dorsett is smaller than I was originally thought, I can see the hit being deemed low.
