The timing of this unexpected sanction has certainly raised eyebrows among fans and pundits alike. The Vancouver Canucks now find themselves facing a considerable financial setback of $50,000. It's worth noting that due to the unfavorable exchange rate, this penalty translates to approximately $37,109 in US currency, further amplifying the blow for the team.

It remains to be seen how this incident will affect the Canucks moving forward. Undoubtedly, there will be conversations and discussions surrounding the appropriateness of such sessions after the official conclusion of the season.
