USHL Hockey Coach Chases Referee On The Ice
Total Pro Sports – All the fans who attended the Waterloo Black Hawks and the Chicago Steel game on Saturday night at Young Arena got all of their moneys worth and more.
The penalty-filled game had a total of 60 minutes in penalties and was won by the Waterloo Black Hawks 7-4. The game also included the Black Hawks coach P.K. O’Handley getting ejected in the third period after he jumped onto the ice to argue with the referee. O’Handley originally tried to get the ref’s attention with a water bottle but that didn’t work.
“As bad as things were out there it is unfortunate that it had to happen,” O’Handley said. “I am not proud of it and it should not have taken place.
“I thought our guys played very well under some tough circumstances. It has been a very difficult 24 hours for this team.”
You can bet the United States Hockey League will further look into this matter and take the needed action to discipline Black Hawks P.K. O’Handley.
At least he didn’t freak out and like Tuuka Rask did the other night when he boomeranged his stick after his Providence Bruins lost to the Albany River Rats.
