Nashville Predators D P.K. Subban fined $2,000 for diving, embellishment

Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban was fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline for diving/embellishment, the NHL announced Wednesday.

NHL Rule 64 is designed to penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. 

Fines are assessed to players on a graduated scale, with the second citation earning a $2,000 fine.

Subban was issued an initial warning following an incident against the Minnesota Wild on Jan. 22. The 27-year-old received his second citation after being whistled for embellishment during the third period of Game 4 of Nashville's second-round series against the St. Louis Blues on May 2.

Subban is no stranger to being fined for this offense.

The 2013 Norris Trophy winner was a three-time offender during the 2014-15 season when he played with the Montreal Canadiens.
