Toronto Maple Leafs forward Michael Bunting has a furious outburst during the game and violently kicks opposing player

Bunting chose to kick Trent Frederic in the back of the knee as payback during a brief fight.
Although Frederic wasn't hurt, a kick to the back of the knee might cause serious injuries like a ruptured ACL. Bunting ought to be intelligent enough to understand that such behaviour is improper.
The next attack by Frederic was a slash to the side of Bunting's leg, which still merits a penalty but is at least much less likely to result in an injury.
Bunting should start acting a little better now that he's a potential UFA.
