Back in February, Nazem Kadri was fined $5,000 for a throat-slashing gesture against Calgary Flames' Mark Giordano. Apparently Anaheim Ducks' Josh Manson didn't read the news, because he made the same gesture at Kadri at 17:17 of the third period of a March 24 match between the Leafs and Ducks.

Manson will be fined $2,486.56 for the gesture, which came after a scrum behind the Anaheim net caused Kadri to come in hard on a hit.

Manson was penalized for game misconduct and ejected from the game. He is fined according to Rule 75.5, which states, "Any player who uses obscene gestures on the ice or anywhere in the rink before, during or after the game. The Referee shall report the circumstances to the Commissioner of the League for further disciplinary action."

Kadri was also penalized for boarding for his hit on Manson. According to our game recap:

[2:43] Kadri takes a boarding penalty and the Leafs have to face another Ducks PP if they want to have a chance to win this game.
[2:17] Grabner's failed clearance almost comes back to bite the Leafs in the butt. Sparks rescues him by standing tall in net and making a save on a point shot with a heavy screen in front.
[1:22] The Ducks have great movement and pressure on this PP, but Sparks and the Leafs defense are hanging on, just barely.

Kadri went on to score the game-winning-goal in overtime.
