Puck Daddy - NHL

Pavel Datsyuk(notes) of the Detroit Red Wings is a four-time winner of the Lady Byng Trophy, given annually in the NHL to "the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability."

The following move from the Wings' Game 6 win against the San Jose Sharks wasn't exactly "gentlemanly" of Datsyuk, as his skate gets wedged in Thornton's "how-do-you-do." Although that might depend on how one feels about Joe Thornton(notes):

No penalty on the play, despite Thornton getting crotchety. And no word on whether Datsyuk has any formal training as a mohel.

(Ed. Note: It's come to my attention that over-reactive Wings fans some readers feel this post was something more than a goof on a funny highlight. It's not. Lighten up.)
