Bruins prospect Fabian Lysell throws stick at end of game in heated moment originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Boston Bruins prospect Fabian Lysell has enjoyed tremendous success in his first ever WHL playoff run with the Vancouver Giants.

He has tallied 21 points (four goals, 17 assists) in 11 games so far. Fifteen of Lysell's points came in the Giants' historic first-round upset of the Everett Silvertips.

The Giants have had a tougher time in Round 2 against the Kamloops Blazers. The Blazers took a 3-1 series led on Thursday with a 4-2 win in Game 4.

Here's what needs to happen for Bruins to win Game 7 vs. Hurricanes

Lysell lost his balance and fell to the ice in the final 20 seconds of the third period while trying to create a potential game-tying goal. He got up and threw his stick the length of the ice at Blazers forward Logan Stankoven as he scored an empty-net goal to seal the victory.

Lysell wasn't done, though. He went after another Blazers player before the referees sent him off the ice. The Swedish right winger was assessed a two-minute minor penalty and a 10-minute misconduct for throwing his stick.

Check out the crazy scene in the video below:

Lysell did help the Giants stave off elimination with two assists in a Game 5 win on Friday night. Vancouver will try to extend the series again on Sunday.

Lysell plays the game with a lot of emotion, and that typically helps him. It clearly didn't in Game 4. There's no excuse for throwing your stick at an opponent.

But overall, it's been a fantastic first season for Lysell in the WHL. His excellent offensive performances have given Bruins fans plenty to look forward to whenever he makes his debut in Boston.
