Growing up around Edmonton as a diehard Leafs fan I’ve always been overly critical of the Oilers.
But seriously, Zack Stortini is disgracing the art of fighting in the NHL. I respect any player willing to throw his fists for the good of the team, but Stortini resorts to clutching his opponent for an embarrassing 30 second man-hug.
The ‘Stortini slow dance’ doesn’t just reflect poorly on his own character, it disappoints hockey fans hoping to see a real tilt.
Be careful Zack, or you might get slapped with a two-minute holding penalty on top of the five-minute major.
