The fine system used by the NHL is totally separate from the salary forfeited when suspended, and it is capped at $5,000. The current NHL Player Safety regime is much more fond of levelling these fines than past versions of that department, and there is no real reason to think most players care about the money at that level.

This definitely looks like the incident:

And until the stick makes contact, this was likely going ignored by everyone. Hyman was assessed a minor penalty at 18:16 of the third period.
