Canadian Antoine Roussel sentenced $ 5,000 to bite Marc-Edouard Vlasic in San Jose


San Jose Sharks took a pretty big bite from Canucks on Friday and got a 4-0 lead.

And at least one Canuck, without leaving California, seems to have emerged without removing his own body.

With only 40 seconds left in the game, during a fight through the boards, Vancouver's left winger Antoine Roussel opened his mouth and shook Marc-Edouard Vlasic's hand in San Jose.

Roussel was sent to the locker room early on and he was given a harsh punishment on Saturday.

The NHL Player Security Division was fined 5,000 Roussel for the bite, the biggest penalty that the player association could get under the collective bargaining agreement.

Cash goes to the Players' Emergency Fund.

Vancouver Canucks left-wing Alex Burrows clashed with a Stanley Cup final playoffs on Wednesday, June 1st, 2011, after the first period of the match with the Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron on the left. Burrows was not suspended for claims that Patrice bitten his finger, Bergeron.

It's not the first time Canuck has brought the headlines for inappropriate gnashing.

In the 2011 Stanley Cup final against Boston, Alex Burrows bit Patrice Bergeron's finger in the game.

The NHL came to the conclusion that there was no evidence that the Boston center was deliberately bitten, and escaped without a suspension.
