Milan Lucic was ejected last night from the game between his Los Angeles Kings and the Arizona Coyotes.
After getting slashed on the wrist by Coyotes' Kevin Connauton, Lucic lost it and sucker punched Connauton.
After the game, Lucic confirmed that the X-Rays on his left wrist were negative, but the big winger had some choice words for the official Brad Meier:
"I mean, if I don't react, I don't think he even calls a penalty. Same guy - Brad Meier. I think this is the fourth time he's kicked me out of a game. It's always the same thing with him. ... Guys can take liberties on me and it's not a penalty. If I do something, then I'm automatically kicked out of the game. It's just unfortunate that it is that way with him, and I've just got to move on and not get frustrated by the referees in the game."
"I truly thought the worst because I couldn't feel my hand after the slash like that, and that's the way I reacted the way I did. ... I'm just thankful that everything came back negative,"
It was also confirmed earlier today that Lucic will have a disciplinary hearing with Stephane Quintal.
