It's been a while since I played in a men's league, and look, I've seen some stuff, but I've never seen anything like this:
Dude went for the kill!
Do I have video?
Watch #90 in white, he's the one who takes the kick to the face.
Yup, that dude was ejected from the game and has been indefinitely suspended from the Adult Safe Hockey League (this is in Canada). The police have also gotten involved in this little scuffle.
The Burnaby Royal Canadian Mounted Police tells us the victim received medical treatment for injuries he suffered from the kick -- adding that they've since launched an investigation.
"Burnaby RCMP is continuing to investigate the circumstances and actions that led to the player's injuries," the officials said.
"Burnaby RCMP is in possession of video showing one angle of the incident, which has been collected as evidence. Investigators are still in the process of speaking with players and witnesses."
Yeah, well, dude deserves to be punished by the law.
Hockey fights are for fists, not blades.
The ASHL released this statement concerning the incident:
The conduct and on-ice behaviour depicted in the video in no way aligns with the values of our league and the rules of the game. As a result of their actions, the offending player was issued a match penalty during the game, as well as a game ejection. Subsequently, the player was automatically suspended indefinitely and will receive supplemental discipline in-line with Section 2.15 (A) of the ASHL Rule Book.
Next time just take the L and walk away. Or maybe don't go around picking fights in a men's league.
