NHL fines Minnesota Wild forward Setoguchi for high sticking Red Wings opponent

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL fined Minnesota Wild forward Devin Setoguchi US$8,108.11 on Tuesday for a high-sticking incident in a game versus the Detroit Red Wings.

Setoguchi was fined for high-sticking Detroit defenceman Kyle Quincey in the second period of Minnesota's 3-2 victory Sunday. Quincey needed more than 20 stitches to close the cut on his chin.

Setoguchi received a double-minor penalty on the play.

As a first-time offender, the maximum Setoguchi could be fined was the lesser of $10,000 or one-half of his daily salary.

The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
