Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley was fined $25,000 by the NHL on Monday for his role in the line brawl that opened Saturday night's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations, Colin Campbell said on the ruling: "We are holding Mr. Hartley responsible for the actions of Flames' right wing Kevin Westgarth, who took the game's opening face-off and attempted to instigate a premeditated fight with an unwilling opponent -- the Canucks' Kevin Bieksa."
