Last night in a preseason game against the Florida Panthers received a match penalty for sucker punching Panthers defenceman Aaron Ekblad. While Max’s father Tie was known for moves such as this, Max was always known as more of a skilled player with a bit of grit to his game. Whether this was a move to make himself more known to the Montreal fans or just something out of pure anger, it is not something we need in the game. While i am fully supportive of fighting in hockey and I hope its never removed from the game, sucker punching an unsuspecting player is something i want removed. Ekblad has a history of concussions, and moves like this can seriously hurt a players life and career. I would expect Domi to be suspended minimum 3 games.
