VIDEO: Player Handcuffed on Ice

Several months ago, we saw a ref get physical with a player, but this time, it didn’t end with a Barstool video and thousands of retweets. Twenty-one year old junior player, Olivier Marcotte wins this weeks scum award for his actions towards the linesman.

According to CBC.ca, Marcotte spat in the officials face. The two became entangled in a physical altercation and Marcotte appeared to throw a punch. The other referees took Olivier Marcotte to the ice and pinned him until the boys in blue arrived. They put his face in the ice and handcuffed him to the tune of a standing ovation from the crowd.

This weeks scum award recipient was taken in custody, but then was released later that night and will not be facing charges. He is however in his final year of Junior AA eligibility so refs need not fear much longer.
