Fans, Kane’s ex-wife pay off Hartman’s fine for flipping the bird

While the goal of NHL fines is to deter conduct deemed unseemly to hockey, we're not sure that it achieved that goal in Ryan Hartman's case.

Following the extra-curricular activities on Tuesday night's victory over the Edmonton Oilers, the NHL handed Ryan Hartman a neat and tidy $4,250 fine for flipping Evander Kane off as the two were headed to the penalty box/dressing room.

Hartman's wallet was a little lighter for just a moment, though, as Evander Kane's estranged ex-wife, Anna Kane, stepped in to pay off a piece of that fine.
