Video- Stephane Auger Gets Whacked With Stick Blade

Looks like the bottom of Andrew MacDonald’s blade caught Auger in the mouth area or right above it.

Wouldn’t it be appropriate to call a high-sticking penalty?  Except for the follow through of a shot, a player is expected to be in full control of his stick at all times; no difference when the infraction occurs on an official.

“Stephane Auger gets whacked with stick blade”

is a lot better than:

“Stephane Auger gets stick whacked with blade”

Hope he recovers soon.

I was thinking the same thing.  Should be a fine!

Hey Auger, that’s what high sticking looks like. Maybe now you’ll fricken call it the next time you see it(along with the hooking and holding you seem to miss on a nightly basis).
Seriously, I hope the guy is ok but he is hands down the worst ref in Hockey. And trust me that is saying a lot in a league that includes Brad Watson, Eric Furlatt and Tim Peal.
Oh and yes I know how bitchy this sounds but its six in the morning and I hate six in the morning.

I’m surprised the other ref didn’t call a tripping penalty on Auger.

Best Video of the year!  As an official that is supposed to be paying attention to the game, what was he watching? How on earth did he not see that coming?  It’s his job.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Yeah, I agree, really hard not to laugh at Auger on this one… he probably still didn’t see the high stick.

I’m surprised Auger did not call everyone on the ice for the high stick. He sees the game so well.

Andy McDonald and Alex Burrows are now BFFs. 

This high stick might actually have done some damage.  It might prevent him from talking.  Had it hit him in the eye, there would be no impact at all.

I hope Stephane recovers.  And is then forced to retire.
