Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: A Disgrace To The Game

New, comments

Just before we get to today’s headlines, how about a little rant about this KHL player being a disgrace to the game?

The Kunlun Red Star, the KHL’s expansion team located in Beijing, took on Barys Astana in a preseason game but they didn’t finish thanks to Barys’ Damir Ryspayev sucker punched one player then tried to fight nearly everyone on the ice before making his way to the bench to brawl with others.

According to Alvis Kalnins, the KHL is reviewing the incident but a suspension is “unlikely” to be more than 10 games. Ryspayev had 83 penalty minutes in just seven games two seasons ago and piled up 111 penalty minutes in 16 games last season.

“He’s a disgrace to the game!”
