Jordan Binnington reacts to his suspension the only way he knows how!

What a weird comment to make!


On Thursday, St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington was suspended two games for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct against the Minnesota Wild when he simply lost it and attempted to fight forward Ryan Hartman and then beloved goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.

When he met with reporters on Friday, Binnington was asked about the hearing and the consequent suspension, and this is what he had to say per team insider Jim Thomas.

“It felt like I was in Good Will Hunting acting as Will trying to defend himself in trial. A new experience, for sure, and definitely not something I want to go through all the time.”

“I was hoping for less, for sure,” Binnington said. “But yeah, it is what it is.”

When questioned by the department of Player Safety, Binned attempted to explain what pushed him to attack Hartman.

“I was just reiterating that (Hartman) knows how to embellish a play. I watched the video numerous times. I never made contact with him.”

When asked the suspension and if it will change his attitude, Binnington didn’t sound convinced.

“I don’t know if it’s going to get much better than that: having 18,000 people cheering, at center ice, at home, ‘Fight For Your Right’ is playing, the crowd’s into it,” Binnington said. “That’s a feeling that no one can take away from me.

“In saying that, I’m getting married, turning 30. You might see a new JB coming at you.”

The immature goalie will be 30 in July… it’d be about time to improve his temper. Though he believes when it comes to him, it gets blown out of proportion…

“I think it can get blown out of proportion,” he said. “It’s situational for me. I’m not reactor. Someone could run through my crease, blow me up and we’re up in the game or something, I’m not doing one thing.

“I can take a hit, and I like guys playing hard. It’s more of an energy, momentum kind of an ordeal and sometimes it reaches a breaking point. It’s an aggressive game. I think sometimes you’ve got to stand up for yourself, and that’s kind of how my approach was.”

I bet he never learns..
