Habs rookie Lane Hutson earns a significant fine in his first NHL game

Welcome to the NHL, now hand over your paycheck!



Montreal Canadiens rookie Lane Hutson made his NHL debut yesterday evening against the Detroit Red Wings, picking up an assist for his first NHL point.

The Holland, MI native was seemingly all over the ice last night and produced several great scoring chances for his new team. He fit in well with his teammates and gave Habs fans a glimpse of what might come when he suits up for a full season next year. In the meantime, Hutson will be counting on those teammates to bail him out and pay the $2,500 fine that he earned yesterday evening.

You see, by taking his 'rookie lap' in pre-game without a helmet on, the rookie earned himself a $2,500 fine from the NHL.

Typically, players will buck up to pay this fine for a rookie seeing as how they don't have the cashflow that established veterans may have.

In case you missed it last night, Lucas Raymond saved the Detroit Red Wings' entire season.

With the Red Wings down 4-3 late in the 3rd period and needing at least a single point to keep their season alive, Raymond tied the game up with an outstanding goal. Things got even better when he won the game in overtime.

The building was absolutely electric in Detroit and Red Wings fans across the hockey world were hooting and hollering in celebration. Check out this viral video where a delivery driver gets surprised by Raymond's game tying goal while dropping off his delivery of... you guess it... wings:

Perfect. Just... perfect.

Read below for our earlier report on Raymond's heroics, published yesterday evening.

In dramatic fashion, the Detroit Red Wings snatched victory from the jaws of defeat on Monday night at Little Caesars Arena, thanks in large part to a superhuman effort from forward Lucas Raymond.

Not only did Raymond knot the score late in regulation, but he also sniped goaltender Samuel Montembeault in the extra session to give Detroit the extra point that they desperately needed. Had they not picked up at least one point, their playoff hopes would have officially ended. 

The Red Wings found themselves trailing 4-1 to the visiting Canadiens, who were eliminated weeks ago from playoff contention but certainly didn't play like it. However, a pair of goals from J.T. Compher gave the Red Wings life, while Alex DeBrincat stayed hot by cutting Montreal's lead to one with a third period tally of his own.

The Red Wings take on the Canadiens tomorrow night from Bell Centre in the regular season finale; a victory by Detroit coupled with a loss of any kind by the Capitals would give Detroit a playoff berth.
