I was at this game, this man was shovelling the ice right before the 3rd period however the ref didn't notice him and dropped the puck. Detroit won the draw so rather than continue and risk a too many men penalty, they substituted one of their forwards and let him join the play. I heard this morning that they signed him to a 1yr 900k deal, he'll most likely be with the Grand Rapid Griffins for about 12 years though before getting called up again.
