Daniel Sedin pulls out tooth, fails to impress ref (Video)

Sometimes, the difference between a high-sticking minor and a double-minor in the NHL is available evidence. Like for example blood.

Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks presented Exhibit ‘A’ to the on-ice officials after taking a stick to the mouth from Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin on Monday night – by pulling out his tooth.

The rulebook states that it’s a double-minor when “contact causes an injury, whether accidental or careless.”

Alas, Muzzin was just given a minor for high-sticking.

Here is a brief recreation of that scene:

DANIEL: [Yanks out tooth] “Hey ref, look, his stick made my tooth fall out!”

REF: “Whatever, we all know that’s some weird Swedish candy that resembles a tooth that you and your brother keep in your gloves to snack on during the game. It’s probably made of smelt.”

DANIEL: “No, seriously, it’s my tooth!”

REF: “C’mon, you’re a Canuck. You actually think you’re getting a call from me? Look, you’re not even in any pain.”

HENRIK: [Screams in agony, covering his mouth as if someone had ripped out one of his incisors.]

Annnnnd scene.
