Mark Scheifele is in the news again for his lack of sportsmanship

Against all odds, despite a change in head coach, leadership changes and a lot of injuries for the Jets, the team has performed well since the beginning of the season.

What hasn't changed in the organization is Mark Scheifele's demeanor, which can sometimes cross the line, as he did with his stupid check on Jake Evans in the 2021 playoffs.

No. 55 didn't do anything as bad this time, but he was penalized for two minutes for overreacting to a denied clearance. Indeed. The forward literally threw the puck at the referee on the sequence.




It probably wasn't intentional, hopefully, but the players are responsible for their actions and it could have had much more serious consequences.
