Ryan Hartman adds fuels to fire with Gabriel Landeskog!

​The two were broken apart by officials as Landeskog attempted to rip his head off!


This was trending on Thursday night : in the second period of a heated contest, Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog got set off by Minnesota Wild’s Ryan Hartman. Insiders and pundits on scene at the game believe the captain did not like the hit of Hartman on teammate Nazem Kadri and wanted to make him pay. But you have to imagine Hartman said something that truly got under Landeskog’s skin to make him react like this. 

Even once the officials got them separated and sent to the penalty box, Landeskog still mouthed off to the referees about not being able to fight Hartman. The Avs superstar was handed a roughing penalty and a misconduct. The Wild forward had to go down the tunnel for repairs with a bloody nose. 

A day after the game, Wild insider Michael Russo for The Athletic spoke with Hartman, who commented on Landeskog’s actions and might have added fuel to the fire, and this, before the 2021-22 even gets underway! 

“Hit Kadri. Guess you can’t hit these days.”

Not sure this is just about the hit, or maybe Hartman said something that set off Landeskog on the ice. If so, this probably won’t help!
