The ECHL provides more entertainment than the WWE, and below is another example of why. After Wheeling player Ryan Schnell picked a fight with defenseman Joey Ryan as retaliation for an earlier cross-check, Toledo coach Nick Vitucci explodes decided that he would really let his emotions get the best of him.
According to the Toledo Blade:
Following his expletive-filled rant, Vitucci was kicked out of the game and marched in disgust into the locker room. He was issued a bench minor for unsportsmanlike conduct and a game misconduct. He said Schnell should have been called for an instigator penalty for starting the fight.
“Their 12th forward went down and challenged our top defenseman. Let the fighters fight the fighters. Don’t go after the skill players,” Vitucci said. “He went after one of our players when the puck wasn’t even in the area. That’s an instigator. He’s going down there to start a fight. If the ref doesn’t see that … it’s absolutely frustrating. I hope that didn’t come from their bench. Shame on them if it did. We play them a couple more times. I hoped that wasn’t the case.”
