The 2013 world ball hockey championships got way out of hand last week, and there is video to prove it. Justin Pender, who plays for the Canadian men’s team, absolutely lost it following the Czech Republic scoring an empty net goal in a 5-1 route. Check out how he immediately goes after a Czech player and ends up also fighting the goalie and ref on accident. It is amazing to me that no other teammates rushed to help the goalie.
According to the Telegram:
Canadian defenceman Justin Pender of St. John’s was given a double match penalty with one second left after an incident that resulted in a game official being taken off the floor on a stretcher. The official was reportedly injured as he tried to intervene when Pender tangled with a Czech player after the winners scored an empty-net goal. Czech goaltender Lukas Heczko was also involved.
