06:44 PM ET 12.19 | Minnesota Wild forward, Devin Setoguchi has made headlines recently and he wants to set the record straight so the story does not reflect poorly on him. Or should it? You may recall Setoguchi signed with the Ontario Reign of the ECHL as a place to play during the NHL lockout. Recently Setoguchi informed the club he was taking a leave of absence until the lockout was either lifted or the season was canceled. Michael Russo of the Star Tribune then heard that the Reign has issued a statement that the team had suspended Setoguchi indefinitely for not providing a reason for his leave. Russo did what any good journalist would do, he followed up on the story and ended up speaking with Setoguchi personally who wanted to clarify the situation. Russo reports that Setoguchi decided he didn't want to play during the holidays, hence the leave. He confirmed with Russo that there was no incident that warranted the team to suspend him, rather this is the Reign's way of keeping Setoguchi on their roster.

If this catches on in the NHL there won't be enough players for a game.

And would he be requesting this if the NHL was playing??? And who does he think he is anyway, Crosby.
