You never know what you’re going to get when you go to an AHL game.

Maybe you see a scrub who was placed on waivers or sent down, or a rehabilitating top two forward.

Or, maybe, you’ll just witness an act of utter embarrassment by some guy you probably never heard of.

If you’ve never heard of Dane Byers, it’s because he’s played in all of six NHL games in his professional career.

To his credit, however, the 25-year-old is captain of the Springfield Falcons.

But that doesn’t warrant this behaviour a few nights ago:

The incident occurred Saturday night. (Yes, this moved awfully slow on to our site, but it’s still worth the look and ridicule.) The best part is the blurb of Byers “wanting” that pest Trevor Gillies who apparently is stirring up **** even with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the affiliate to the New York Islanders.

Isles Woes Continue with 4-2 Loss to the Rangers

The Story line for the Islanders season continues to be that even when they play well, they cannot pull out a win. That was the case last night when the islanders lost 4-2 to the New York Rangers. The deathblow to the Islanders came at 15:05 when Josh Bailey attempted to clear the puck out of his own zone. The attempt was cut off by Brandon Dubinsky and got the puck over to Brad...
