New York, NY, United States (4E Sports) - Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson is the ninth player this season to be sanctioned for diving/embellishment after the NHL announced Friday that he will be fined $2000.

Wilson was fined receiving his second citation in a 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild Thursday.

He was shoved in the second period by Wild forward Zach Parise who received a two-minute minor for roughing.

The 20-year-old was handed his first citation on March 1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Wilson was fined under NHL Rule 64 which was revised for the season and approved during the offseason to penalize payers (teams) that dive/embellish to draw penalties.

The National Hockey League Hockey Operations Department assess all penalties for diving or embellishments even the ones not called in games.

A citation is handed if deemed necessary by Hockey Operations after their deliberation.
