Hockey Linesman Hit In The Face [VIDEO]
You gotta love a hockey linesman who gets clocked in the face twice and doesn’t even blink. This is a must-see video.
Cal Clutterbuck and Maxim Lapierre got into a fight during the Vancouver Canucks vs. Minnesota Wild game on Thursday night. Linesman Darren Gibbs ate Clutterbuck’s fist twice (:26 and :31 second mark).
This guy Clutterbuck officially has the worst aim of any hockey player in the NHL. His two left hooks had no chance of connecting. We always talk about how the NFL is officiated too closely and how the referees are way too overzealous when it comes to penalizing teams. It’s nice to see an official in another sport literally get punched in the face and not even react. Props to you, Darren Gibbs. Your man card is safe.
