Last night was our first experience with the no tuck rule that will be tormenting the NHL this season. The culprit? Alexander Semin when he was whistled for a delay of game penalty for having his jersey tucked into the back of his pants. Honestly, this new rule is ridiculous. In some cases tucking a jersey is part of a player’s ritual and personal preference. Why would you force a player to change-up something so personal to them? It’s dumb. The NHL needs to wake up and leave some of the originality in the game.

Here is a nice little flashback for all of us ’90’s kids. Keenan Thompson appeared on Fox Sports 1’s Crowd Goes Wild and gave the crowd a little flashback with some knuckle puck action. The quack attack is back Jack!
