Game Misconduct My As…

5 Mar

 

Evidently Travis Zajac has been watching the same Youtube videos we have where Kris get’s undressed by Deryk Engelland, his team-mate during a play fight. But this time, Letang not properly tieing down his jersey during an actual game dearly cost the Penguins. Zajac pops Letang in the face and they start grappling and realizes that Letang’s jersey isn’t strapped down and pulls it off him knowing that he can get him out of the game for good. Brilliant? Yes. Fair? Well, I guess that depends whose side you’re on. Should this rule be changed in the NHL rule book?

46.13 FIGHTING/Jersey – A player who engages in a fight and whose jersey is not properly “tied-down” (jersey properly fastened to pants), and who loses his jersey (completely off his torso) in that altercation, shall receive a game misconduct penalty. If the player loses his jersey despite the tie down remaining in tact and attached to the pants, the game misconduct is not applicable, however this must be reported to the League office so that the jersey and the tie down can be examined.

So, I guess if you want to get Kris Letang out of a game, you just have to jack his jersey! Humm … Ovi is on twitter again isn’t he. Just in time in case they meet in the play offs.

    This will never happen again. Apparently something about wearing your jersey tucked in interferes with being able to tie your jersey down. But the Pens’ equipment manager has dealt with this by… my god, there’s no way to say this without it sounding hilarious… Letang wears special pants. They added something somewhere so he can tie his jersey down and keep his jersey tucked in. Special pants.

    No, really, that’s the actual title of the article. I love his explanation. “I just didn’t do it.” He didn’t even try to make up an excuse.

    Bless his heart for being honest. More bonus points. I would have had to lose some respect for the ‘special pants’ option. Because really? Then he would be riding the short bus with MAX TALBOT and that would break my heart.
