Basha hasn't been fined. The NHL has just begun the process of litigating him for trademark violations.

It's rarely in a corporation's interest to pursue these kinds of battles any farther than they need to go to achieve the end they want. If threats or initiating the legal process gets the message across (which it did in this case), it's not prudent to waste time and resources on dragging things out. It's very likely that the NHL will drop the case, or agree to a small settlement with Basha to address his unintentional wrongdoing.
