Jim Diamond provided the initial news that Shea Weber will not be suspended but will be fined $2500 for his hit on Jannik Hansen on Thursday night. There is no word as to whether he will be considered a repeat offender going forward.

Here is Diamond's full story from Calgary with reaction from those involved.

The hit on Jannik Hansen occurred on Thursday night at 5:12 in the third period in the Preds 5-1 loss Vancouver. Hansen received a bloody nose but was able to return to the game.

Here is the official release from the NHL...

Weber fined $2,500 for boarding incident vs. Canucks

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber was fined $2,500 on Friday by NHL Director of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan for a boarding incident in a game Thursday night in Vancouver.

The play occurred a little more than five minutes into the third period Thursday night during the Canucks' 5-1 victory against the Predators at Rogers Arena. Weber was assessed a minor penalty for boarding Vancouver's Jannik Hansen behind the Nashville net and another two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Weber has played 408 games in his seven-year NHL career. He finished last season 19th in the League with 211 hits, which was sixth among defensemen. As a Norris Trophy finalist last season, Weber is the most high-profile player to have had a disciplinary meeting with Shanahan this season.
