NEW YORK - Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf has been fined $10,000, the maximum permitted under the NHL/NHLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement, for directing an inappropriate remark toward another on-ice participant in Thursday's Game 4 of the team's Western Conference Final Stanley Cup Playoff series with the Nashville Predators, the National Hockey League announced today.

Getzlaf's comment is a violation of the League's policy which prohibits inappropriate and offensive remarks, and the use of obscene, profane or abusive language or gestures in the game.

"Getzlaf's comment in Thursday's game, particularly as directed to another individual on the ice, was inappropriately demeaning and disrespectful, and crossed the line into behavior that we deem unacceptable," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "The type of language chosen and utilized in this instance will not be tolerated in the National Hockey League."

The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
