Scott Neidermayer Fined US $500,000


STORY

The National Hockey League has fined Anaheim Ducks defencemen Scott Niedermayer approximately $500,000 for missing training camp, according to a report in the New York Post.

The league has reportedly invoked an article in the CBA that states: "For each day a Player does not report to Training Camp without his Club's permission, his pay will be reduced by 1/275th of his annual . . . salary . . . ." Niedermayer will earn $6.75 million this season.

Niedermayer missed the training camp and the beginning of the season, while contemplating retirement. The 15-year veteran would eventually return to the Ducks on December 5th.

I have a dream of a world where a blogger can simply be a news aggregator. I try to keep my dreams small and attainable.

We're allowed bad days every now and then.

Apparently it is the Ducks who have fined Nieds and not the NHL. As well the fine was required because of his early season suspension, but the NHL and NHLPA have stepped in to try and find a way to allow Scott not to pay it.

All according to Bobby Mac anyways.

Justice. If only Selanne could be fined by the NHL as well.
