NHL chief disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan and his office announced the punishment for Setoguchi on Tuesday morning. Setoguchi was fined $8,108.11, otherwise known as the new maximum amount under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Well, technically the max is $10,000, but Setoguchi wasn't eligible for that high of a fine as a first-time offender. Instead, he was fined half of his daily salary, thus the oddball number on the fine. (On a side note, that really puts it into perspective what these guys make, huh? That's half of his daily salary?!)
Setoguchi was assessed a double-minor in the game for the high-sticking on Quincey, and perhaps that was a factor in Setoguchi not getting a suspension on this play, in addition to his previously pristine record.
This won't do a ton for Setoguchi, I'm sure, but it at least starts a file in Shanahan's discipline drawer. It's like having your name known by the school principal; it's likely not a good thing. You'd be happy if he/she never noticed you.
