Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville fined $25,000 for 'inappropriate conduct'

The inappropriate conduct: Grabbing his crotch.

Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville couldn't convince the referees on Thursday night to give his team another power play by grabbing his crotch and screaming like a mad man.

What he ended up getting instead was a $25,000 fine from the NHL for what the league will only refer to as "inappropriate conduct."

What does inappropriate conduct look like? It looks like this...

Following the game, which Chicago lost in triple overtime on an Alex Steen goal, Quenneville apologized for his reaction and said that it was a bush league move on his part.

It's not the first time Quenneville has had a run-in with officials that has resulted in a dent to his pay check. He was fined $10,000 for claiming that a 2009 penalty on Matt Walker was "probably the worst call in the history of sports." He received another $10,000 fine for voicing his displeasure with the referees in 2012 when Marian Hossa was injured by a Raffi Torres hit to the head
