Brady Tkachuk's Diving Skill Highlighted in Crazy Game Against the Maple Leafs

BY AARON    MARCH 20, 2023  (10:41)
Brady Tkachuk seemingly borrowed a tactic from his Ottawa Senators teammate Tim Stutzle, as he was captured on video executing a highly exaggerated dive during a game. Astonishingly, the officials fell for the performance and penalized Justin Holl for tripping in the incident.

Controversial Call as Tkachuk Demonstrates Diving




It is unexpected to see such behavior from Tkachuk, who is known for being a fierce competitor in the league. The minimal contact from the barely noticeable tap on his skate should not have provoked such a dramatic reaction. Frankly, it's somewhat embarrassing.


Even though Holl was caught off guard and reaching during the play, the contact with Tkachuk's skate was barely detectable. If the officials had been set on penalizing Holl, they could have opted to call both players – Holl for tripping and Tkachuk for embellishment. However, it's important to remember that NHL officials aren't particularly famous for their unbiased judgments.
