The NHL announced a pair of fines on Wednesday afternoon, fining New Jersey's Eric Boulton and Columbus' Jared Boll $2,500 for incidents during Tuesday's slate of games.

Boll was fined for an illegal hit to the head of San Jose's Joe Thornton just 20 seconds into the first period of the Blue Jackets 6-0 loss, and you can see it at the very beginning of the clip featured below.



He was given a two-minute minor during the game.

Boulton was fined for slashing Rangers forward Mike Rupp during the Devils' 4-3 shootout win. He was not penalized on the play.

As always, $2,500 is the largest fine the NHL can hand out for an on-ice incident, and all money goes to the Players Emergency Assistance Fund.
