Karlsson Has an Outburst On the Bench
Although Erik Karlsson is on pace to become the first defenseman in 30 years to score 100 points, watching his San Jose Sharks play has been difficult.
Despite his impressive individual performances, they have not been enough to overcome the team's struggles, and this has evidently taken a toll on his emotions.
During a recent game, Karlsson became visibly frustrated after a high-stick by Alexander Kerfoot went unnoticed by the officials. In a fit of anger, he aggressively threw his helmet onto the ice, resulting in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Following the incident, Erik Karlsson addressed the media:
In the post-game interviews, Head Coach David Quinn agreed that the referees missed the calls:
Regardless of whether the high-stick was called or not, it would not have had a significant impact on the Colorado Avalanche's dominant 6-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks.
