NHL Ref Punched in Mouth Breaking Up Fight (Video)

Last night during the Avalanche vs Blackhawks game a little fight broke out. Referee Andy McElman bravely jumped in to break it up which is part of his job description. What isn’t part of his job though is getting punched in the mouth by Blackhawks defensemen Michal Rozsival. I’m sure it was an accident but you know that athletes everywhere have felt like doing this at some point...

Michal Rozsival accidentally punches linesman in the face (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. As an NHL linesman, Andy McElman is aware that breaking up fights is part of his job description. There’s always a risk involved when you get in the middle of a couple of 220-pound athletes, but most officials will go their entire career without being decked in the face. […]

WATCH: Official knocked down on errant punch during scrum

GIF via @GoldAndOrSmith Late in Tuesday’s Blackhawks-Avalanche game in Chicago, linesman Andy McElman attempted to break up a scrum between Avalanche center Max Talbot and Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival. Unfortunately for McElman, an errant shove/punch caught him on the chin and sent him falling to the ice. It was pretty funny for those of us at home, but I hope Talbot and...

Team Czech Republic hockey preview: Too many veterans

Looking up and down the Team Czech Republic roster reveals plenty of notable players. The problem with those names is that the majority of them are on the back end of their careers. Patrik Elias, Jaromir Jagr, Milan Michalek, Petr Nedved, Tomas Kaberle, Michal Rozsival, and Marek Zidlicky have all seen better days. Players such as Jagr and Elias are still playing at a premium level...

Coyotes must look inward to solve their problems

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- With Game No. 50 set for Tuesday in Calgary, we can all agree on a few things about the Phoenix Coyotes. They need veteran help along the blue line, they need a better offensive option for their second line left wing, and those turnovers and defensive-zone lapses go hand-in-hand with inconsistent goaltending and a poor penalty-killing unit. But if general manager...

A Quenneville Strategy

I am always on the lookout for a strategy that one team employs but no other NHL team follows - at least not to the same level.  The Chicago Blackhawks are using zone starts to set their lineups more so than any other team in the NHL.  They have a group of players who are used as exclusively as possible for shifts that start in the offensive zone and another group of players who...

Hawks' Rozsival fortunate puck to face just bad cut

During practice Wednesday, Michal Rozsival wore a full-face visor. Entering the locker room, he wore a cap, and just a few inches below it he wore a black patch of stitches on an upper lip that looked like it had been inflated by a tire pump. And this was the veteran Blackhawks defenseman looking and feeling fortunate. “Nothing broken, no teeth missing,” Rozsival said. “Could...
