Ryan Rupert Delivers Vicious Slash To Stomach Of Nick Cousins (Video)

ryan rupert slashThings got awfully interesting, and somewhat frightening, during the dying seconds of Friday’s Ontario Hockey League contest between the London Knights and the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.  It all started when Greyhounds forward Nick Cousins decided to celebrate his team’s victory following the final buzzer by getting in the face of Knights center Ryan Rupert.  That turned out to be a poor and painful idea that he would pay for dearly.

Already agitated by the loss, Rupert wasn’t having any of the ensuing taunt, as he immediately delivered a two-handed slash to the stomach of Cousins before dropping his gloves and pouncing on his wounded opponent.

As you might expect, a brawl between the two teams ensued, resulting in an indefinite suspension for Rupert, and two-game suspensions for three other Knights players and four Greyhound players.

I’d tell you that Cousins got the last laugh in this instance, as his team handed the Knights just their third loss of the season, but I highly doubt that he will be able to do any pain-free laughing after taking that nasty two-hander to the abdomen.

Here is a look at the incident.
