Video: Ref cam captures vicious stick attack from Russian amateur league

Some people take beer league hockey a bit too seriously. This clip from a Russian amateur league is an example of someone who just needs to chill out and realize it’s just a game.

Referee Nikita Tikhonov called a 10-minute penalty and needless to say the reaction from the player displays how he feels about the call.

Officials are meeting to decide the fate of the player and whether or not he will stay in the league. They’re also determining whether or not the entire team should be kicked out as well. This type of incident has no room in any league, regardless of skill level.
