News: Komarov was fined $40,000 US in Finnish court this week for two speeding tickets in 2014, reports CTV Barrie.
Impact: He had been clocked doing 77 kph in a 50 kph zone and then 131 kph in a 100 kph zone. And in Finland, your fine is calculated based on your income. Komarov attempted to tell the judge his income was zero because hockey players don't get paid over the summer, but the judge was quick to remind him that both incidents occurred after he signed a four-year contract worth $2.95 million US per season. It won't affect him on the ice ... other than to take a bit of razzing about his lead foot.

News: Komarov is facing four criminal charges in his native Finland in relation to a 2014 traffic accident, Lance Hornsby of the Toronto Sun reports.
Impact: Komarov is alleged to have been responsible for a "traffic hazard" and for "falsifying information to police," among other accusations. The 28-year-old could spend up to nine months in jail if found guilty of the charges during his August trial. For their part, the Leafs are standing by Komarov and expect the matter to be resolved before training camp opens, but the charges still cast a dark cloud over the forward. Komarov is under contract with the Leafs for three more seasons after accruing 26 points in 62 games in 2014-15.
