OK Daily: Prosthetic Legs, Gloves, Teeth All Being Used In Recent Fights



Artemi Panarin throws glove at Brad Marchand

I know I have only been the full-time beat writer for the Vegas Golden Knights through Vegas Hockey Now for just over a month now. But I think this might go down as one of the most unique articles that I have ever written in my entire life.

There were three recent skirmishes in the NHL; two of them on the ice and one off the ice, in which a unique strategy was used.

Meanwhile, the Vegas Golden Knights are in the midst of a three-day break from games. They will take on the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday, December 1 on the road. Practice for today is scheduled for 11:15 at City National Arena. VHN will have updates on the potential return of Alec Martinez as well as other notes from practice.

Anyways on to the fights.

Vegas: During Saturday night’s game against the Edmonton Oilers, a Golden Knights fan had a unique strategy to try and get the upper hand on a fight in the stands. They used their prosthetic leg in a fight. I have never seen this move before in my life but props to whoever this is for the creative feat.

But please stop fighting in the stands…

Boston: In case you missed it, Artemi Panarin also used an inanimate object to try and attack another person. During a game against the Boston Bruins Panarin threw his glove at Brad Marchand. He was later fined $5,000 for his little act. Just fight the old-fashioned way people.

Ottawa: In the third instance of a non-traditional fight Ottawa Senators captain Brady Tkachuk was bitten during a scrum with Los Angeles Kings forward Brendan Lemieux. Tkachuk called Lemieux a brick head in a postgame interview and Lemieux received a hearing from the NHL’s department of players safety.

Anyways on to the ‘normal’ news of the day.
