In some less significant Philadelphia Flyers news today, the NHL is doling out punishments.

One goes in favor of the Flyers, and one against.

Under NHL Rule 64, Flyers forward Garnet Hathaway has been fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment. According to the League, “NHL Rule 64 is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties.”

Hathaway’s embellishment took place at 8:07 of the third period of the March 23 game against Boston. The Flyers’ agitator was in Linus Ullmark’s crease when Andrew Peeke’s knee clashed with the back of his leg, sending Hathaway crashing down to the ice awkwardly.

Hathaway was not assessed a penalty for embellishment during the game and was previously issued a warning for embellishment after the Jan. 2 game against the Edmonton Oilers.

More recently, Montreal defenseman Kaiden Guhle will be having a hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Friday for slashing the Flyers’ Travis Konecny in Thursday night’s game.

After laying a hit and getting tangled up with Juraj Slafkovsky, Konecny was slashed by Guhle, who was standing on Montreal’s bench. Guhle was not assessed a penalty by the referees for the slash, despite a linesman being right next to Konecny and the referee having a line of sight to witness the incident.

The Flyers ultimately lost to Montreal 4-1, being downed by two-empty net goals.
