The NHL Fined Joel Quenneville $25,000 For His Crotch Grab


How much does grabbing your crotch while yelling at NHL officials during overtime of a playoff game cost you? Well, nothing if you’re a fan. Once you’ve paid for your ticket you are legally allowed to grab any part of your own body that you like, while saying any damn thing you want to.

Seriously, it’s in the Constitution. Look it up.

If you’re a coach, however, it’ll cost you $25,000.

That’s how much the NHL fined Joel Quenneville for his crotch grab Thursday night. Which I’m sure Quenneville won’t complain about publicly given what he said about the incident before he was fined.

“Disappointed with the call, but I apologize for my behavior,” said the self-adjuster. “It wasn’t very appropriate at all. It was a bush-league move on my part.”

Speaking of things that might be considered bush league, did I just write this post solely for the purpose of posting this gif? Maybe.

Am I going to apologize for it? Nope.
