Video: Derek Dorsett ejected for squirting water at Patrick Maroon

As far as ejections go, this is a weird one. When was the last time you saw a player ejected for not even physically touching his opponent? That’s what happened when Derek Dorsett was ejected after he sprayed his water bottle at Patrick Maroon. The whole thing is kind of hilarious.

Buyers or Sellers? Sellers. This Canucks team needs to be rebuilt and there are plenty of players on the Canucks roster whom Vancouver would be better off trading.
