Wednesday the NHL announced that Canucks forward Jannik Hansen has been fined.
" Jannik Hansen has been fined $2,000 as supplementary discipline under NHL Rule 64 (Diving/Embellishment), the National Hockey League announced today.
NHL Rule 64 is designed to bring attention to and more seriously penalize players (and teams) who repeatedly dive and embellish in an attempt to draw penalties. Fines are assessed to players and head coaches on a graduated scale outlined below:"
$2000 is not much especially for a guy who is making $2.5 million for this year and the following two. But with that being said, $2000 is TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS.
So, in an alternate universe, Jannik Hansen could of spent some money on something more fun than trying to draw a penalty.
Things such as:
Rent a Celebrity:
Some celebrities supplement their incomes by doing appearances. Bill Clinton typically charges a minimum of $50,000 per speech he makes, Kim Kardashian somehow has a rate of $100,000 per appearance. Hansen could have either had about two minutes with Kardashian or maybe looked to some D-lister with a more affordable rate.
Buy a Tanning Bed:
Stay a perfect shade of golden bronze with a tanning bed. There are some sweet deals on eBay.

This one is a little pricier, so Hansen will have to throw a couple extra bucks in.
Prices range from $4000-to-$6000.
