Not all mascots are warm and fuzzy.

The Chicago Blackhawks released a statement after a video surfaced showing the team’s mascot, Tommy Hawk, body-slamming and punching a fan who provoked him in the concourse of the United Center one night earlier.

In the video, the man appears to try to attack the mascot, who then lifts the man into the air and slams him to the ground before landing several blows while other fans watch nearby.

“We are gathering the facts and will have no further comment at this time, pending our investigation,” the Blackhawks said in a statement published by the Chicago Sun-Times.

You come at The King, you best not miss.

It’s a lesson teenager Andrei Svechnikov will never forget.

Ice hockey legend Alex Ovechkin used his fists to keep the dream of another Stanley Cup triumph alive as the Washington captain threw down with his younger rival, putting the rookie in his place when he dared to square up with the 33-year-old.

In a scary brawl featuring two unlikely foes in Ovechkin — the grizzly future Hall of Famer and Svechnikov, the Carolina Hurricanes’ 19-year-old wunderkind trying to follow in The Great 8’s footsteps — the elder Russian won in a knockout fashion that would leave even Mike Tyson speechless.

There goes the Devils’ modest winning streak.

Bryan Rust scored a tiebreaking goal midway through the second period and the Penguins continued their playoff push and avoided the embarrassment of being swept by the lowly Devils with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night at Prudential Center in Newark, despite the fact the character David Puddy of “Seinfeld” fame was in attendance.

“Puddy”, played by US actor Patrick Warburton, was made famous in an episode of the iconic sitcom where painted his face in Devils colours in an episode and shouted: “We’re the Devils.”

Over 20 years on, the joke hasn’t died down.

Warburton dropped the puck before the game in a ceremonial opening to the night, but the real moment that sent mouths running was the TV star’s slip-up on the ice as he exited the rink.

Artemi Panarin ‘s**t his pants’, says Columbus Blue Jackets coach

Published

Too much information, coach. TMI.

The coach of NHL side the Columbus Blue Jackets was in no mood for mincing his words when quizzed about why star forward Artemi Panarin wasn’t suiting up for the clash against the Montreal Canadiens.

Panarin has been the subject of intense trade speculation in recent days as he wants to explore free agency this coming winter. The Blue Jackets need to decide whether they use him as trade bait to lure another player to the franchise before the February 25 deadline, or hold onto him for a run towards the playoffs knowing full well he’s a huge chance of leaving at season’s end.

His absence from the ice against the Canadiens fuelled speculation there’d been a development in his personal situation but Tortorella was adamant there was nothing sinister about the move.
