Oilers’ Yamamoto fined for ‘dangerous’ trip on Flames’ Andersson

The NHL’s department of player safety announced Sunday that Edmonton Oilers forward Kailer Yamamoto has been fined $3,854.17, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for a “dangerous” trip on Calgary Flames defenceman Rasmus Andersson.

The incident occurred during the Oilers’ 3-2 win over the Flames at Rogers Place in Edmonton on Saturday. As Yamamoto jousted for position in front of the Calgary net with Andersson, the diminutive winger kicked the Flames rearguard’s left skate out from under him, sending him to the ice.

Yamamoto was assessed a two-minute minor penalty for tripping on the play.
