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 Detroit.

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

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
