Klim Kostin gets a 10 minute misconduct for a penalty that I guarantee you've never hear of before

This is hilarious!



Detroit Red Wings forward Klim Kostin is a certified beauty.

Tonight the 24 year old Russian earned himself a 10 minute misconduct for an infraction that I personally have literally never heard of before. 

Kostin and Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Connor Murphy ended up in altercation with Kostin taking Murphy down hard to the ice. Kostin remained on top of Murphy and, apparently, he refused to get off of his opponent because he was assessed a 10 minute misconduct for "continuing the altercation."

I honestly can't say I've ever heard of that penalty before, but apparently it's legitimate. 

Frankly, I'd be surprised if anyone has ever heard of this call before.

For my own curiousity I had to Google the penalty and indeed found that it's in the NHL rule book. I also discovered that it was last called back in 2017 in a game between the Calgary Flames and... you guessed it... the Detroit Red Wings.

That evening the Red Wings and Flames got into a brawl that was pretty much all precipitated by Luke Witkowski. In the end Brett Kulak, Travis Hamonic and Witkowski all earned themselves 10 minute misconducts for continuing the altercation in that evening.

Tonight, it's Kostin playing the role of Witkowski, which honestly makes a ton of sense.

In any case, for more Red Wings news from the evening check out our earlier published report on forward Robby Fabbri's absolute dime of a goal.

Detroit Red Wings forward Robby Fabbri is absolutely on fire right now, and he just gave the fans of Hockeytown an incredible highlight they'll be playing on repeat. 

Carrying the puck through the neutral zone, he absolutely walked Wyatt Kaiser with an incredible deke and proceeded to beat former Detroit goaltender Petr Mrazek for the go ahead goal:
