Habs’ Mike Cammalleri Hacks Away At Nino Niederreiter (Video)

During the 2010 NHL playoffs, Mike Cammalleri’s precision with his hockey stick around the net rivaled that of a surgeon operating with his cutting knife.  And as the NHL wrapped up pre-season play over the weekend, Cammalleri was once again showing off his skills with his stick, but rather than doing so by scoring some goals, he was busy slicing and dicing the face and legs of the Islanders’ Nino Niederreiter.

Cammalleri was assessed a 5-minute major and a game misconduct for his actions.  The NHL will also be reviewing the incident to determine whether they should fine and/or suspend the Habs’ forward.  As for Niederreiter, he would leave the operating table game with a bruised calf.  I’m sure another visit to Dr. Cammalleri can fix that.
