Ryan from Flyers Goal Scored By … has the latest adventure from our favorite KHL goon squad Vityaz Chekhov. And while we'd never criticize the officiating in Russia, mayhaps it's a good idea to break up a fight before the guy standing up begins elbowing the head of the guy kneeling before Zod:
Until earlier this week it seemed that most of the Canadian tough guys who had ventured to the KHL for money, vodka, and mail-order brides (local postage) were mainly targeting Europeans and Russians with their ridiculous antics. That's not longer the case, as Thursday night saw notorious AHL enforcer Jeremy Yablonski take on journeyman Darcy Verot - and litteraly drop 'bows on him.
Both players were given fighting majors and game misconducts; and hopefully, in Verot's case, the Russian equivalent of Excedrin.
Yablonski, by the way, leads the KHL in penalty minutes with 82 in five games. That's a PIM-per-game average of 16:24.
Jeremy Yablonski averages more time-off-ice (16:24) than Milan Lucic averages time-on-ice (16:16).
What a world.
