Frederick Breedon

Nashville's first brush with the NHL's Department of Player Safety comes as Rich Clune is fined, but not suspended, for a recent hit on Colorado's Aaron Palushaj.

4th-line banger Rich Clune has been fined for a charging incident in Monday's game at Colorado, in what is becoming a busy week for Brendan Shanahan's office. Today Vancouver's Jannick Hansen was suspended one game for roughing Chicago's Marian Hossa, and yesterday Calgary's Mark Giordano and Minnesota's Devin Setoguchi were fined for separate incidents.
