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

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.

— Senators goalie Andrew Hammond, who defeated the Jets on Wednesday to improve to 6-0-1 since making his first NHL start on Feb. 18
