Last night the refs in the NHL had a rough night at work.
I can’t explain this at all. Dennis Wideman ran over a ref.
“I was just trying to get off the ice. I was kind of keeled over and at the last second, I looked up and saw him. I couldn’t avoid it,” he said. “I don’t know where to go or how to get out of the way of him.”
“I think I have treated every official with the utmost respect, and I would never intentionally try and hit a linesman, or a (referee),” he added. “It was completely unintentional and I already apologized to him.”
Here’s what the NHL rules say about it ==> HERE
I have a hard time thinking it was an accident after seeing the video
Also, Milan Lucic popped a linesmen in a scrum. He did apologize right afterwards. This I think was an accident
