When it comes to fight tactics, rarely does a hockey player use the famed ‘punch himself in the head to psyche himself up and then flail at his opponent’ move, unless it's a special occasion.  

Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta probably found something special indeed with his fight against Ottawa's Jared Cowen. Or maybe ... oh it's impossible to speculate what he's doing in this tussle. 

The gif please (s/t Puck Drunk Love):

It’s like Kaleta punched himself in the head just to give himself enough adrenaline to take on the Senators defenseman, or scare the (you know what) out of him by looking crazy.

Whatever the reason, it’s hilarious and caused us to chuckle.

Thank you Patrick Kaleta, for creating a new boxing move. It’s like the Muhammad Ali, float like a butterfly and sting like a bee … except not at all.
