NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Minnesota forward Devin Setoguchi faces a fine hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Tuesday morning for a second-period incident in Sunday's game against the Red Wings.

Setoguchi was assessed a double-minor for high-sticking, though it looked more like a cross-check, to Kyle Quincey’s face in the neutral zone. Quincey left the game, received 20-plus stitches to close a large cut to his chin, and returned by the start of the third period.

Following Sunday’s game, Quincey noted that Setoguchi’s past doesn’t suggest that he’s a dirty play, however – whether or not he intended to injury – Setoguchi must be responsible for his own stick.

“I wasn’t expecting that,” said Quincey, who was clearly defenseless on the play.

Quincey felt that Setogushi’s actions warranted a major penalty, but the Wings’ defenseman was more disappointed that Detroit didn’t score during the ensuing four-minute power play.

“I don’t know if the ref saw it. Maybe if he did he would have given him five, but he’s not a dirty player,” Quincey said. “Things just happen, I guess.”

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