Trevor Zegras taken down in embarrassing fashion by NHL official

Published April 3, 2024 at 5:04 PM

During the Ducks latest game against the Calgary Flames, there was an embarrassing moment for young star Trevor Zegras and an NHL official.

Trevor Zegras is often on the right end of highlight reel plays for the Anaheim Ducks, but unfortunately, that wasn't the case on Tuesday night. When fighting for the puck with Calgary's Connor Zary, Zegras was pushed down the boards, and unfortunately it didn't end well for him, as he bumped into the official and fell in a heap, not a great look for a professional player.

Unsurprisingly, Zegras was incredibly frustrated, and for the second time in less than a week, we've seen Trevor Zegras express his frustrations after a play. While the NHL is certainly trending towards smaller players with plenty of skill taking over the league, players still need to be physical enough to take contact and stay in the play, but unfortunately that just didn't happen here.

The Ducks would end up going on to defeat the Flames in a fun contest by a score of 5-3, but as we've seen this season, Zegras just hasn't been his best self, and perhaps if he hits this off-season with the intent of getting stronger, we may see him at his best in 2024-25.
