The NHL didn’t appreciate what Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville himself described as “a bush-league move on my part” and he will consequently have to pay a fine of $25,000.
The incident in question occurred during the second overtime period of St. Louis’ 4-3 victory over Chicago last night. The Blackhawks bench boss felt that Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk should have received a delay of game penalty after he appeared to send the puck into the stands while the Blues were killing off a penalty.
When Quenneville didn’t get his way, this happened:
This isn’t the first time Quenneville has been fined for expressing his anger over an officials decision. He received a $10,000 fine after he called the refereeing a “disgrace” when forward Raffi Torres wasn’t penalized for his high hit on Marian Hossa. Torres was, of course, later handed a 25-game suspension that was eventually reduced to 21 contests.
In 2009, he also lost $10,000 after calling Matt Walker’s roughing penalty a “probably the worst call in the history of sports.”
