Even if it IS an accident, his timing alone should get him a suspension for sheer stupidity. There is no possible way he could have thought that punch would have landed anywhere near Ott given the timing of throwing it.

The slo-mo video is a bad angle AND bad timing. What you can't see is that just before he starts to wind up Steve Ott ducks. Steve Ott is literally between the linesman and Demers.

So Demers was trying to punch Ott, Ott ducked, and he nailed the linesmen.

Because Ott is a total D*ckhe*d, it is forgivable.

Actually, if you look closely, you'll see the linesman's arm push the punch upwards, causing the errant punch.

I'm glad the refs realized they stepped in too early and didn't issue a suspension. They have been stepping in on a lot of fights this year (like Abby v Iggy) and it puts the refs in danger.

And he was trying to punch Ott, so that alone negates the possibility of suspension :)

Can't believe there wasn't a suspension. I'm waiting for video of Steve Ott's 5 minute major and game misconduct for spearing in tonight's game between the Stars and Kings.

Maybe they should start carrying tasers. It would make quick work of all those scrums.


A little late to be swinging IMO, but I don't see a suspension there. The linesman got popped from his trying to gain control of Demers' arm.

I don't get why they are so willing to jump in and break up a fight. If the two are willing combatants, let them go. They'll quit when they've had enough. These guys are just looking to get hurt.
