NHL fines Boulton, Boll $2,500 each

The National Hockey League on Wednesday fined New Jersey Devils forward Eric Boulton and Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jared Boll $2,500 for separate incidents.

Boulton was docked for his slash on New York Rangers forward Michael Rupp early in the second period of Tuesday's contest.

Boll will be lighter in the wallet after delivering an illegal check to the head of San Jose Sharks forward Joe Thornton on Tuesday.

All funds automatically go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
