Isles' Clutterbuck fined for diving/embellishment

New York, NY ( - New York Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck was fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment by the NHL on Wednesday.

Under NHL Rule 64, players can be fined for embellishment if they are cited by the league twice. Clutterbuck's first citation came on Dec. 6 against the St. Louis Blues.

The second incident came when Clutterbuck drew a hooking penalty on Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek in a Jan. 19 game.

Clutterbuck was not assessed an on-ice penalty for either incident. Subsequent embellishment citations will result in larger fines.
