New York Rangers’ Mats Zuccarello Doesn’t Like International Refs

New York Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello apprently wasn’t pleased that a referee was blocking his way, so he “helped him along”.

While we’re busy cannibalizing each other over various New York Rangers banter, let’s check in with the International Ice Hockey Federation tournament.

Apparently Rangers’ forward was attempting to make it to his bench, and a zebra was in his way.

Zuuuuuuuuc wasn’t in the mood to ask the gentleman to move politely, so he did the next best thing.

He just shoved him out of the way.

I have to say, I’m a little surprised to see this type of behavior out of Zuccarello as pushing a ref in the NHL would certainly lead to a suspension.

Norway defeated Latvia by a score of 3-1 today. Mats Zuccarello tallied one assist in the victory.

Oh, and one ref shove.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: Chris.Wengert@elitesportsny.com
