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

Bunting made the decision to make himself known during a game against the Boston Bruins, where the team's notorious trouble maker Brad Marchand would typically cause the greatest havoc.

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.
