Ah, the Colin Campbell NHL.
Koci joined Sparta Praha last season and has stayed consistent racking up over 200 PIMs through 60-plus games with the team.
On Friday, Koci (6-foot-6) added to his PIM total by first laying a dirty hit from behind on Robert Petrovicky and then dropping the mitts with Boris Valabik (6-foot-7), who you might remember as Sidney Crosby's speed bag:
Petrovicky would be fine, saying afterward, "My old bones do not feel it too much". In a measure of revenge, he would score the go-ahead power play goal four minutes later en route to a 4-2 victory for his HC Kometa Brno side.
For his troubles, the Czech Extraliga suspended Koci six games for hit and will be out of the lineup until after Christmas.
