The NHL Department of Player Safety slapped New Jersey Devils forward Jordin Tootoo with a $2,217.74 fine for his dangerous trip on Nashville Predators defenseman Seth Jones.

The incident took place at the 7:55 mark of the third period of Tuesday's game at Newark's Prudential Center. Tootoo was assessed a minor penalty for tripping on the play.

The fine is the maximum allowable under the CBA.

Detroit Red Wings forward Johan Franzen is dealing with post-concussion-like symptoms and has been placed on the short-term injured reserve, according to general manager Ken Holland.

The 35-year-old was held out of Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning after the team reported Franzen wasn't at 100 percent.

Franzen appeared in just 33 games last season after battling concussion issues.

The team also confirmed forward Darren Helm will likely be out through the weekend, while forward Luke Glendening is questionable for Friday's game versus the Carolina Hurricanes with a lower-body injury.

Brian Burke's done with moving.

The Calgary Flames president of hockey operations was in Toronto on Thursday, speaking at the University of Toronto, and said his current gig is his last in hockey, writes the Toronto Star's Sean Fitz-Gerald.

"I'm not tired," Burke, 60, said. "I don't want to get out, I love what I'm doing. I hope that this run lasts for 10 years - but this will be my last job in hockey."

Burke's been with the Flames since September 2013. Being in Toronto, he of course talked about the Maple Leafs, the team he presided over as president and general manager for almost five years.

"The team I left here was a playoff team, people forget that," he said. "And the energy that went into that, and the abuse you take to get there, and the sleepless nights and the driving home after losses, it's enough."

Burke also addressed the current Maple Leafs - the front office, in particular.

"You've got Lou Lamoriello ... who's never taken an order from anybody, Mike Babcock - who's a great coach and a good guy - who doesn't think he should take an order from anybody, and you've got Brendan Shanahan in the middle, who's a very bright, stubborn Irishman.

"Now, how does this work? How many hands can you have on the wheel?"

Burke said should his time in Calgary end on the Flames' terms, and not on his own, he'll find work teaching or in the media.

"I won't ever go away from the game altogether," he said.

The Florida Panthers beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Thursday, and Roberto Luongo made some history in the process.

Luongo made 23 saves and tied legendary goaltender Grant Fuhr on the NHL's all-time win list with 403. Luongo's now only five wins from passing Glenn Hall for eighth.

Florida improved to 3-1 on the season, and the win was Luongo's 144th as a Panther.

Luongo wasn't the only one making history. Jaromir Jagr scored twice - the 725th and 726th goals of his remarkable career. The 43-year-old is on the verge of a couple of incredible goal-scoring milestones:

Jaromir Jagr is currently five goals shy of Marcel Dionne for fourth on the NHL's all-time list. He's 15 behind Brett Hull for No. 3.

San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture suffered a broken fibula after going down in practice Thursday, according to general manager Doug Wilson.

"Logan was injured in practice on Thursday in New Jersey and suffered a fractured right fibula at the ankle," Wilson said. "He will be returning to San Jose to undergo surgery under the direction of Kaiser Permanente’s medical team. He is expected to miss four-six weeks."

The 26-year-old reportedly went down during a 5-on-5 drill towards the end of practice and was in considerable pain. He was seen leaving the ice under the assistance of teammates Brent Burns and Brenden Dillon, putting no weight on his leg and was later wearing a boot and sporting crutches

Couture played in all 82 games last season and has one assist through three games of the 2015-16 campaign.

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Nikita Nesterov has been suspended two games without pay for his hit from behind on Dallas Stars forward Curtis McKenzie on Thursday night.

Nesterov was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for the hit, which sent McKenzie face-first into the boards in the second period of Dallas' 5-3 victory.

The Stars forward was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury Friday after spending Thursday night in hospital.

The Department of Player Safety cited McKenzie's injury and the fact that Nesterov had no history of supplemental discipline as factors in the decision.

Tomas Plekanec will remain with the only team he's ever known.

The Montreal Canadiens and the center agreed to a two-year contract extension Friday, the club announced. The deal is worth $12 million, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie, with Plekanec earning $7 million in 2016-17 and $5 million in 2017-18.

Plekanec deal does NOT include a no-trade or a no-move, so straight up deal

— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) October 16, 2015
Plekanec was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He's in the final season of a six-year, $30-million contract.

The 32-year-old had 26 goals and 34 assists in 82 games last season, and is a seven-time 20-goal scorer.

A reliable two-way player, Plekanec is off to a good start along with the Canadiens this season, with four goals in five games.

"I'm happy for Tomas. He's grown up in the organization. He's a real professional, and he's a good example for young players." - M. Therrien

— Canadiens Montréal (@CanadiensMTL) October 16, 2015
Plekanec was a third-round pick, 71st overall, by Montreal in 2001. He has 206 goals and 297 assists in 766 regular-season games, and 46 points in 81 playoff games.

The New York Islanders placed former first-round pick Louis Leblanc on unconditional waivers Friday, according to multiple reports.

The move will likely result in the mutual termination of Leblanc's contract, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. According to TVA's Renaud Lavoie, the 24-year-old signed a contract with KHL club Bratislava.

Leblanc was drafted 18th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 2009, but the selection didn't pan out. He scored only five goals and added five assists in 50 games over two seasons in Montreal.

He spent the 2014-15 season in the AHL, tallying 14 goals and 15 assists in 71 games.

I'm not sure what the more surprising stat is so far this NHL season: that Anaheim has scored just 1 goal in their first 4 games ( including 3 at home ) or that Cindy Crosby doesn't have any points after 4 games. :?

Anaheim is going to bring the hurt on someone when they finally breakout.

Columbus 0-5 and looking terrible.

The top 3 teams in the Pacific were picked by a lot of people to be the bottom 3 when it's all said and done.   No surprise that Edmonton isn't doing much even with McJesus.

Habs 5-0 and Jets 4-1 make me very happy but it's still so early.

As far as Crosby and the Pens, just another example that prognostications mean sfa.Some creaky past their prime forwards, suspect D and Fleury do not a championship make.

Edmonton won't do any better until they trade one or 2 of their young forwards for a stud defenseman. They should've drafted Seth Jones.

I'm 100% sure they would have, but he was already picked by the time Edmonton was up.
Connor McDavid is a fucking beast though.
