The SportsXchange

Minnesota Wild forward Devin Setoguchi has been fined $8,108.11 for high-sticking Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey on Feb. 17, the NHL's Department of Player Safety announced Tuesday.

The amount is the most allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Setoguchi was assessed a double-minor penalty for the infraction, which occurred at 15:16 of the second period.

As a first-time offender, the largest fine was the lesser of $10,000 or one-half of Setoguchi's daily salary. The money benefits the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
