You might remember that earlier this week Daniel Sedin was the victim of a high stick courtesy of Jake Muzzin. It appeared that Daniel pulled his own tooth out to show the ref, and many were puzzled by the fact that it wasn't a four minute minor. Witness the penalty:
Ow. Turns out there is a perfectly good reason Muzzin did not get four minutes - it wasn't Daniel's tooth. It was a cap. From The Province:
There were many left confused when Daniel Sedin was high sticked Monday. He showed the ref his resulting broken tooth but failed to draw a four-minute penalty.What gives?Turns out, Daniel wasn’t showing the official a broken tooth, he was showing him a cap that had slipped off and explaining to the ref he should not call a double minor as a result.“I was surprised it had stayed on there for two years,” Daniel said.
