Desperate for retribution after being slammed from behind by Calle Jarnkrok on Saturday in Nashville, San Jose Sharks tough guy Micheal Haley carried out a brutally accurate one-punch attack on an unwilling participant.
For his act of war, Haley received a match penalty for intent to injure. Jarnkrok was called for boarding.
Though Haley should probably expect a ring from Player Safety, Sharks coach Pete DeBoer believes his enforcer's actions were just.
"When you run someone from behind in a game like that, you probably deserve to get a punch in the mouth," DeBoer said, according to CSN's Kevin Kurz.
