Devin Setoguchi faces a 9 a.m. hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan on Tuesday after the Wild winger cross-checked Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey in the face Sunday night.
Setoguchi will not be suspended, sources say. The hearing is to determine how much he'll be fined, if at all. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, any fine in excess of $5,000 requires a hearing. Since half of one day's pay for Setoguchi exceeds $5,000, this qualifies.
Setoguchi accepted a pass in front of the Red Wings' bench and was met by Quincey. Setoguchi reacted by getting his stick up in Quincey's face and drew the penalties.
Setoguchi has no previous history of discipline issues with the league, although Sunday marked his second double-minor for high-sticking in eight days.
