Maybe it's the lack of NHL but I find myself inquiring random questions about how the league is run from a business standpoint. I was curious to know what or where the funds from a player that is fined go? Is it simply kept by the league? or divided up amongst teams?.....other? My apologies if this topic has already been covered,just a curiousity.

I was browsing the net and stumbled on this from wikipedia,thought it was interesting.

Interesting question.

Did a Google search and found a post at HFBoards with quotes from the last CBA regarding fines.

Fines/Suspensions from from League discipline:

18.7 Use of Fine Money and Forfeited Salary.
Any fines collected from or Paragraph 1 Salary forfeited by Players pursuant to any discipline imposed by the League shall be deposited in the NHL Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.


Fines under Article 26 (Circumvention):

26.14 Fines.
Fines paid pursuant to this Article by Club or Club Actors shall be contributed to the Emergency Assistance Fund. Fines paid by Players or Player Actors shall be contributed to The National Hockey League Foundation.


Fines for violating League Rules:

30.8 Violations.
Any fine assessed to a Player for violation of League Rules shall be paid directly to the National Hockey League Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.


Fines by Teams for violating Club Rules:

EXHIBIT 14 - FORM OF STANDARD CLUB RULES
Notes: 1. Fines imposed in connection with a Player's initial violation (first offense) of a Club Rule shall not exceed $250.00 in Native Currency, fines imposed for any subsequent offense of the same rule by the same Player shall not exceed $500.00 in Native Currency. The Club shall take into consideration any mitigating factors prior to levying a fine in accordance with any of the foregoing rules. A Player's record shall be expunged at the conclusion of each Regular Season. Fines shall be collected and held for use at an appropriate team function involving the Players and donated to a charity of the Players' choice. Note that salary withheld for players suspended by a Team (as opposed to suspended by the League) is just kept by the Team and not required to be donated.

During the regular season, the Vancouver Canucks remained the only team that did not have any players or staff suspended or fined.


I'd forgotten this, we are such a lovely team
