Hacking And Whacking Connor McDavid

from David Staples of the Edmonton Journal,

A fascinating and utterly frustrating video from an Edmonton Oilers perspective was put together by Oilers fan @guvniash on Twitter.

It details the endless hooking, hacking and holding of Connor McDavid that went on in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings, fouling that NHL referees let go without penalty.

In total, the video captures 12 incidents where the Kings arguably foul McDavid with no call — with about seven of those incidents, at 6:54 and 0:15 of the first period, 14:46 of the second period, and 13:47, 11:56, 7:23 and 7:18 of the third period — all being more blatant violations of the rule book.

continue for a bit more and wtch the video.

This fan has got to get out and watch some more hockey, not soccer.  One, maybe 2 of those could have been penalties, but the rest were typical hockey defensive plays.

Yeah this video is a joke. They need to take off the homer glasses because there was hardly anything egregious here.

Do these guys understand that defending players are entitled to their ice just as much as McDavid?
This video is joke.

I am already sick of anything Conner McDavid related.  Thanks to social media, this stomach churrning event has occurred 3xbas fast as I got sick of hearing about Crosby.

Everyone gets hacked and whacked (well at least they used to…).


The Oilers aren’t in danger of missing the playoffs because McDavid gets an odd slash or interfered with. Their golatending sucks, and their GM is a joke.    confused

I thought this was a joke…guess it’s not.  Does the guy who put this together realize this isn’t baseball?

Why did this guy waste so much time putting together a video montage like this?

Lol, finally got around to watching this & couldn’t even make it all the way through.  The Carter can-opener + highstick was about the only bad one.  This guy knows those incidental stick-to-shinpad hits happen hundreds of times per game, right?
