Nashville’s Tanner Jeannot fined for kneeing Senators captain Brady Tkachuk

NEW YORK — Nashville Predators forward Tanner Jeannot has been fined $2,000 for kneeing Ottawa Senators captain Brady Tkachuk during Nashville’s 4-1 win over Ottawa on Tuesday.

Happening just over a minute into play in the third period, Jeannot appeared to skate into Tkachuk and position his body in a way where the Senators forward would run his knee into Jeannot’s.

Jeannot was given a two-minute tripping penalty on the play.

The $2,000 fine Jeannot was assessed is the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement for that particular incident.
