Nice try, rookie...

Boston Bruins rookie Trent Frederic has made quite a name for himself early on this season. The 23 year old former 1st round pick raised eyebrows around the league after a spirited bout with Washington Capitals pugilist Tom Wilson.


Now there's people around the NHL who wonder if Frederic might be the heir apparent to a guy like Wilson. The kid has no problem dropping the gloves and he's even got some skill to boot.

I tell you one guy who isn't sold on Frederic though is Wilson's teammate and Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin. 

After getting into a bit of a tussle with Ovechkin behind the Bruins' goal this evening, Frederic tried to drop the mitts with Ovi but Ovi was having none of it.


I'd LOVE to have heard Ovechkin in this moment. "Kid... do you know who I am!?"
