Simon Edvinsson fined 5,000 Swedish Krona ($570.51) for ‘illegal equipment’

According to HockeyNews.se’s Mattias Ek, Red Wings prospect and Frolunda Hockey Club defenseman Simon Edvinsson has been fined 5,000 Swedish Krona ($570.51) by the SHL for wearing “illegal protective equipment” during yesterday’s win over Orebro.

There’s been no clarification as to what was illegal, though he does cut the thumb loops off his gloves.

Update: FYI:

In SHL you need to wear neck protection. He didn’t use it and that’s why he was fined, I think.— Alfred 🇸🇪 (@affehockey) October 1, 2021

He did not wear a neck guard in the game, after being told in previous games that he needs to wear one.— Alexander Nilsson (@aalexnil) October 1, 2021
