Pat Quinn Fined For Post-Game Comments

from NHL.com,

Pat Quinn, head coach of the Edmonton Oilers, has been fined $10,000 for inappropriate public comments made following Thursday night’s game against the Calgary Flames, the NHL announced Friday.

“Mr. Quinn’s comments were inappropriate and without justification,” said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell.

The money goes to the NHL Foundation.

Quinn’s comments concerned an incident between the Oilers’ Sheldon Souray and the Flames’ Jarome Iginla that took place 18 seconds into the second period when Souray crashed into the boards after being tripped by Iginla, who spilled on top of the Oiler defenseman.
