Blackhawks' Quenneville fined
New York, NY – The National Hockey League fined Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville $10,000 on Thursday.
The fine comes as a result of Quenneville publicly criticizing officials following a 3-2 overtime loss to the Phoenix Coyotes in Game 3 of a Western Conference quarterfinal.
In the first period of that Tuesday contest, Coyotes forward Raffi Torres left his feet to deliver a high hit to Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa, causing Hossa to be carried off the ice in a stretcher and to a local hospital for observation.
Torres was unpenalized on the play, but has been suspended indefinitely pending a Friday hearing.
