Wild's Setoguchi faces fine hearing for high stick

Minnesota Wild forward Devin Setoguchi faces a fine hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety Tuesday morning for an incident in Sunday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Setoguchi was assessed a double-minor for high-sticking Detroit's Kyle Quincey at 15:16 of the second period. Quincey left the game briefly, but returned in the third period.

The Wild defeated the Red Wings, 3-2.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, any fine that could exceed $5,000 requires a hearing.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
