NHL Suspensions and Fines 2014-15

As the new season begins, there's a new Justice sitting on the bench at the NHL Supreme Court.  As Stephane Quintal takes over the administration of Justice from Brendan Shanahan, who relocated to ranks of management with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Quintal will be joined by Chris Pronger, who was named to the Department of Player Safety listings on October 10th.

They will be reviewing on ice incidents and assessing what punishment, if any will be required on a nightly basis.

Quintal, carries the more formal title of NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety.  It's anticipated that he will make much use of video, as Shanahan did during his term, to outline how a decision is reached in each individual case.

Our listings of his deliberations can be found below, outlining those that have been summoned to the tribunal.

Offenders may now approach the bench, the court is now in session. Chief Justice Quintal presiding.

Cases up to date as of March 6, 2015
