San Jose Sharks took a rather big bite off Canucks on Friday, deleting the team 4-0.
And it seems that at least one Kanuc was not ready to leave California without pulling out only his body.
With only 40 seconds remaining in the game, during the fight against the correspondence, Vancouver left wing Antoine Russell appeared to open his mouth and undermine the hand of San Jose Marc-Eduard Vlasic.
Russell was sent early in the locker, and on Saturday he was given a stiffer punishment.
The NHL players' department fined Rusel $ 5,000 for bites, the biggest penalty it could get under the collective agreement of the association of football players.
The money goes to the player's help fund.
Anaheim duck hand Canucks 7th straight loss
It is not the first time Kanaku has made headlines for inappropriate squeaking.
Back in the game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup final against Boston, Alex Barrow appeared to bite Patrice Bergeron's finger.
Barroe fled without a suspension in the incident, after the NHL concluded that there was no evidence that he had deliberately seized the Boston Center.
