Minnesota forward Devin Setoguchi has been fined $8,108.11 for high-sticking Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey on Sunday, the NHL announced today.

The fine was the maximum allowed under the CBA; as a first-time offender, the most Setoguchi, 26, could be forced to pay was the lesser of $10,000 or one-half of his daily salary.

Setoguchi was given a double-minor for high-sticking on the play, which occurred in the second period of the Wild’s 3-2 victory over Detroit.

    He’s making 3 mil this year, he’ll live

      Yes, he will live with this fine../ Wish I could make half of his salary per day… wow

      Heard that the Fla Panthers want players as they are going down the hill
      Here is what the Wild should do with the players that they are not going to renew the contracts…. trade for Nick Bjustad The Wild should have never let him get drafted in 2010 by Fla…. he is 6’6″ 230 lbs and Granland is 5’11” 185 and now the Wild need size up front… Bjustad could play in the NHL today just needs to learn the system of the team he plays with.. I am sure this will be his last year at the Univ of Minnesota…
      Many fans here are very disappointed that the Wild did not draft him in 2010 instead of Granland, yes Granland is good, a great puck handler but he does not have the size for the NHL today… only time will tell..
      Bouchard makes 5.4 mil a year and with his concussions, he wont be back.Cullen makes 3.1 mil a year and will be 37 this year, and in my opinion, Heatly who makes 7.1 mil a year is not worth that money at all, but his contract is not up til next year… Setoguchi could be traded also with Brodziak, who has done nothing so far this year…
      trade -trade for Bjustad…

      They didn’t think he’d take $8,108.10 seriously enough.

      Half of his daily salary… not too complicated

    in no way am I complaining about player salaries (good for them) but it’s just amazing to think that 8k to Seto is almost nothing and to me an 8k raise would greatly improve my way of living. I am so jealous in a bunch of ways 😀

    as for the fine, good decision, shouldn’t have been suspended. Move along

    As it should be…

    I understand not wanting to get blindsided… but if he plays the puck across the middle… he better be looking up. If he doesn’t that hit is HIS bad.

    The guys on the other side are going to do their job, and their job is to hit him.

    That’s hockey and not charging.
