COLUMBUS, Ohio - Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky was fined $10,000 Wednesday, the maximum allowed under the new NHL collective bargaining agreement, for boarding Los Angeles defenceman Rob Scuderi in Columbus' 4-2 loss to the Kings on Tuesday. He will not be suspended.

The incident occurred at 11:29 of the second period, and set off a rash of penalties. Not long after, Dubinsky and Los Angeles forward Mike Richards fought. All told, 37 minutes in penalties were handed out, and Dubinsky was assessed a major penalty for the original incident, as well as a game misconduct.

Dubinsky was acquired over the summer from the New York Rangers in the trade for forward Rick Nash. He has four points this season.

The fine money will be sent to the NHL players' emergency assistance fund.
