For the Week of 11/12/01
Brendan Shanahan - Detroit Red Wings
Shanahan was fined $1,000 for mocking referee Shane Heyer on November 2nd after the Detroit’s 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders. The penalty, the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement, came after Shanahan received a gross misconduct for flipping Heyer the puck after the horn, as if giving him the game puck, then clapping his gloves and smiling.

"I guess I was gross," Shanahan told the Detroit Free Press in reference to the call. "I wasn't really happy with the calls that we were getting in the third period, I wasn't happy with the call he gave me."

Heyer had called Shanahan for slashing with one minute left; the referees hadn't called anything after a high stick cut Shanahan's left cheek. Shanahan was upset the Wings were called for four penalties in the third period of a one-goal game between the league's top teams.
