Ryan Getzlaf was fined the maximum $10,000 for an inappropriate remark made during Game 4 against the Nashville Predators.
"Getzlaf's comment in Thursday's game, particularly as directed to another individual on the ice, was inappropriately demeaning and disrespectful, and crossed the line into behavior that we deem unacceptable," said NHL senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "The type of language chosen and utilized in this instance will not be tolerated in the National Hockey League." The fine is apparently for a homophobic slur he directed at another individual on the ice. If that's true, Getzlaf seems to have gotten off easy considering Andrew Shaw was suspended for one playoff game after also using a homophobic slur during the 2016 playoffs. May 20 - 2:12 PM
