NEW YORK (AP) _ Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Marc Bergevin was fined $1,000 Monday by the NHL for verbally abusing an official.

Bergevin was given a gross misconduct penalty following the game against the New York Islanders on Saturday. The penalty calls for an automatic $200 fine and referral of the case to the league for further disciplinary action.

The $1,000 fine was assessed after the review.
