CHRIS NEIL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers Talk Neil Hit

After last night’s game, Marc Staal was so infuriated with Chris Neil’s late hit he refused to speak with the press as he was too livid to talk. Staal, who is fine physically, was assessed a double minor for roughing after he jumped Neil in response to the predatory hit that was somehow unpenalized. The extra minor on Staal destroyed any possibility of the Rangers tying the game...

Neil keeps a stiff upper lip about his battered face

Even by a tough guy’s standards, the face of Senators winger Chris Neil has had a hellish month. There was that errant puck that broke his nose and blackened his eye during a game in Los Angeles Oct. 9, then an elbow to the battered beak last week in Detroit. On Sunday at home against the San Jose Sharks, as Neil was driving to the net late in the game, the stick of Zack Smith...

Senators’ Chris Neil cup checks Penguins’ Douglas Murray

Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil is one of the more frustrating players to play against in the league and this GIF shows why.  While going to gain position in front of the net, he cup checks Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Douglas Murray in a completely unnecessary cheap shot.  How Neil wasn’t called for a slash on this play is beyond me.

Chris Neil Not Happy With Hit From Brooks Orpik

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, "I was going down. I was in vulnerable position. He gave me an extra shove which made me pick up speed going into the boards," said Neil.

Chris Neil Is the NHL’s Active Leader in Penalty Minutes

Ottawa Senators winger Chris Neil recorded two shots on goal against the Bruins on Thursday night, but perhaps what is more surprising is the fact that he was able to stay out of the penalty box. After all, Neil is the NHL’s active leader in penalty minutes with 1,929 to his name over the course of an 11-year NHL career. The 6-foot-1, 285-pound enforcer’s 68 PIMs so far puts...
