Minnesota Wild forward Ryan Hartman has been fined for dangerously tripping an opponent during Sunday's game, a penalty known as slew-footing.

Hartman has been fined $4,250, which is the maximum allowable under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for slew-footing Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ross Colton on Sunday.

The National Hockey League's Department of Public Safety announced the incident happened at 16:28 of the first period. Hartman was assessed a minor penalty for tripping.

This is how the NHL defines a slew-footing penalty:

Slew-footing is the act of a player using his leg or foot to knock or kick an opponent’s feet from under him, or pushes an opponent’s upper body backward with an arm or elbow, and at the same time with a forward motion of his leg, knocks or kicks the opponent’s feet from under him, causing him to fall violently to the ice.

The money will go to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund, according to the NHL.
