NEW YORK, N.Y. - Calgary Flames defenceman Mark Giordano was fined $10,000 by the NHL on Tuesday for his slew foot on Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel.

The incident occurred midway through the second period of Calgary's 4-3 win at Dallas on Sunday. Giordano was assessed a minor penalty for tripping on the play.

The fine is the maximum allowed under the new collective bargaining agreement. Because Giordano is a first-time offender, the fine was the lesser of $10,000 or one-half of his daily salary.

The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
