It amounts to: I didn’t say that and I don’t remember. From The Province:
“No, I never did say that and at the end of the day, I probably believe Boogaard on this one,” Vigneault said Thursday. “It wouldn’t surprise me that Hordi told him: ‘Coach told me I’ve got to fight.’ It must have been a real intellectual conversation. How smart can you be to go after a guy like that?
“AV is the last guy who would ever send a player out,” said Hordichuk, who was also assessed a 10-minute misconduct for wanting a piece of Clutterbuck after the Boogaard bout. “I don’t know what I said to him at the time we were lining up. He wasn’t looking at me and I wasn’t sure he was going to fight. I told the refs ahead of time I might get a two-minute instigator.
“When the coach has to tell me to fight, I’m not going to be in the league very long. When guys are picking on your guys, that’s your green light to go after them.”
