In a recent development in the NHL, two head coaches have found themselves in hot water for their behavior towards officials during games played on Tuesday.

First up, Don Granato, the head coach of the Buffalo Sabres, has been hit with a hefty fine of $25,000 for his actions towards the officials during a recent game.

Granato's behavior resulted in a bench minor being called against his team.




Similarly, Sheldon Keefe, the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, has also been fined $25,000 for his conduct towards officials during Tuesday night's match.

Keefe's actions resulted in a game misconduct penalty.


These fines serve as a reminder of the importance of maintaining respect for officials in the NHL. Such behavior not only reflects poorly on the coaches but also sets a negative example for players and fans.

It's essential for all involved in the game to uphold the values of sportsmanship and fair play, both on and off the ice.
