Mike Matheson suspended 2 games for slamming Elias Pettersson to the ice [VIDEO]

Published

on

There are some hits you see that you know 100% right away are just not okay. The way Mike Matheson of the Florida Panthers hit and slammed down Elias Pettersson of the Vancouver Canucks was one of those hits.

Matheson checked Pettersson into the boards as Elias sent the puck behind him towards his teammates. Nothing unusual, a normal hockey play. Matheson then “finished” his hit by slamming Pettersson head-first into the ice, as if in the WWE. Not okay.

Pettersson was dazed by the hit and helped off the ice. Additionally, he was later diagnosed with a concussion. He’s slated to miss 7 or more days, going through concussion protocol. The Department of Player Safety announced that Matheson was suspended for two games thereafter, for “interference and unsportsmanlike behavior”. His lack of previous suspensions in his career weighed greatly in his favor, reducing what could have been a harsher penalty.

Some speculate that Matheson was seeking retribution for being made to look a fool when Pettersson deked him to the ice.

Make examples of players like this, so they understand that this behavior is unacceptable.

ON THIS DAY: In 1946, Gordie Howe made his NHL debut

No one knew that on this mild Autumn day on October 16, 1946, history was being made. It was in the form of Detroit Red Wings rookie forward, Gordie Howe.

Howe made his NHL debut when the Red Wings hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs at Olympia Staduim. Though he donned the #17 on his jersey in his rookie year, not yet his legendary #9, Detroit knew they had something special in Howe right away. Skating on a line with Sid Abel and Adam Brown, Howe scored his first career goal that very same night. He’d do that 800 more times throughout his career with Detroit.

Bleeding whiskey and maple syrup, Nathan is an avid Red Wings fan who fills his lack of interest for other sports with even more hockey. Born and raised in Warren, MI, he's been in the thick of Red Wings culture since day one, and views the game from an analytical and objective standpoint. (@TheSarcastrophe)

Published

Well, you can file this one under the “you don’t see this every day” category.

Watch as a fan attempts to fight Tommy Hawk, the Chicago Blackhawks mascot following a 4-3 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night. As you can see, Mr. Hawk can certainly hold his own and then some!

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the fan was the instigator, though the police did not necessarily agree with that.

WATCH: Peyton Manning calls out weakness of Detroit Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford

Whether you are a Matthew Stafford supporter or a Matthew Stafford hater, you probably agree that he is not having a very good season up to this point with the Detroit Lions.

Sure, the offensive line has been banged up, his receivers do not get separation, and Jim Bob Cootercould not play call his way out of a paper bag, but Stafford has also been part of the problem.

In his most recent analysis video, former 14-time Pro Bowl quarterback Peyton Manning pointed out one of Stafford’s biggest weaknesses, staring down his receivers rather than looking in other directions first.

“As a quarterback, believe it or not, we need to use our eyes to look off defensive linemen and pass rushers,” he said. “Don’t stare at the receiver because then the pass rushers know where you’re going to go. So look off. Even though if you know you’re gonna throw it out there to the right and to the flat, look left to start, or look down the middle. Don’t let those defensive linemen know where you’re going.”

Check out the video below to see Manning’s full analysis.
