Joel Quenneville Fined $10,000 For Public Criticism Of Officiating

Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville publicly voiced his displeasure over the fact that no penalty was called on Raffi Torres for his hit on Marian Hossa in Game 3, and his comments ended up costing him some cash: on Thursday the NHL handed down a $10,000 fine.

After the officials failed to call a penalty on the Coyotes' Raffi Torres after the winger's hit on the Hawks' Marian Hossa that sent Hossa to the hospital during the first period Tuesday night, Quenneville said: "I saw exactly what happened, it was right in front of me and all four (officials) missed it, The refereeing tonight was a disgrace."
