New York Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba.

New York Rangers captain and defenseman Jacob Trouba will pay for his elbow to the head of the Florida Panthers' Evan Rodrigues during Sunday's Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The National Hockey League announced on Monday that Trouba will be fined $5K, the maximum allowed by the collective bargaining agreement, for the infraction.

It occurred late in the second period of the Rangers' 5-4 overtime win when Rodrigues cut to the net and Trouba hammered him with an elbow to the head.

The elbow knocked Rodrigues to the ice, and he lay there, face down, for a few minutes before getting up and heading for the dressing room to be checked out.

It was actually the second penalty that was called on Trouba in that sequence. There was already his delayed penalty for slashing Sam Bennett that was in the process of being called with Panthers' goalie Sergei Bobrovsky pulled for the extra attacker.

Trouba got a two-minute minor for each infraction, and Florida had a four-minute power play. But Barclay Goodrow scored a shorthanded goal 39 seconds into the power play to stretch the Rangers' lead to 4-2 at that point.

Rodrigues returned to the game and had one assist in 16:29 of ice time. Trouba had two assists in 23:05.

New York leads the series 2-1, and Game 4 is Tuesday at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, Florida, at 8 p.m. ET.
