I was at this game too. Thrower didn't sucker punch him, he just landed first. I don't think that the stick had anything to do with Connor going down, more like getting punched in the face. I could be wrong, but I think Connor didn't play after the fight. LOL finding a clear patch of ice?? Have you ever played hockey? Well I hope you enjoy watching...once you catch onto the game.
"Thrower" is a pretty cool name for a guy that does work with the gloves off.
Connor is a plug has no hands just all around awful!!
I seen this fight live and wasn't impressed with thrower as he sucker punched conner, connor did well until he stepped on a stick that was dangleing between his feet during the fight . thrower should take a page of how durzinski fights and undo the chin strap and find a clear patch to fight on. And to the plug comment, connor was 3 goals and 1 assist in his last 5 games and is plus 1 against the blades in play offs .Reply to Dirty Winger: I played it for 30 yrs, coached the game and seen the inside of rinks from brandon to portland. If thrower wants to play the tough act and get recognized for it, sucker punching a guy won't move any player up in the rankings, Also found out he suckered a guy that just got his face stiched up the night before from a face mask laceration. So he missed the 3rd getting restiched.
