Pekkan Rinne’s Finnish Hockey team has been sanctioned for failing to pay a €60.5,000 fine for not following the regulations of the Finnish Federation.
Pekkan’s team also failed to show up for a mandatory session after it was informed of the penalty and did not attend the next session.
The Finnish Hockey Association (FHA) said in a statement that the FHA had received the information from the Finnish Ice Hockey Federation.
“The FHA informed the team and it is now subject to a penalty of €60k,” the FAA said in the statement.
“In the future the team will have to pay the penalty, and it will be reported to the Finnish government.”
Rinne was fined €1.9 million by the FHF earlier this year for failing a mandatory fitness test.
The Finns’ penalty is the second of its kind in the last 12 months, with the FHI sanctioning the Finns for missing the 2015-16 World Cup of Hockey.
The FHIs latest penalty is only the second ever issued by the league, with former World Cup winner Peter Forsberg being fined €10 million last summer.
