Quick Could Face League Discipline

via TSN,

The Kings were beaten on a goal by Logan Couture after the Sharks played the entire 89 seconds of overtime on the power play. The Kings were received penalties for both hooking and goaltender interference in the final minute of regulation play.

After conceding the game winner, Quick immediately skated out of his crease and was visibly upset.

Quick was assessed a 10-minute and game misconduct after the whistle. According to multiple reports the penalties were for abuse of an official.

According to Rule 39.5 of the NHL Rule Book a game misconduct for abuse of an official may be subject to supplemental discipline.

Watch the only reply I could find of the incident and you can stop watching once you see people chasing a soccer ref.

It would be lunacy to give supplementary discipline for dropping some F bombs on a ref after the game. If you can’t tell a ref to go fuch themselves it wouldn’t be hockey.

“This matter has been dealt with,” said Rob Shick, a former NHL referee who is now an officiating manager for the NHL and is the supervisor of this series.

A league executive who did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly also said no fine or suspension will be imposed against Quick.
