    Huge embellishment by Doughty. Penalties should have been offsetting, no further suspension required.

    This is what standing up for yourself looks like in case you didn't notice but Doughty was gonna run him from behind

    what was the ref looking at.... this is an easy game misconduct and a few more for suspension.. refs are not good enough in todays NHL

    Yeah it wasn't the most clean play but I love how he does this and everyone thinks he'll become the dirtiest player ever.

    he better get suspended 1-2 games...otherwise some goons on other teams are going to fawk him up

  • Anthony Kish

    this was just one play that happened on drew doughty that happened to get caught. I can guarantee that if Tkachuk hit a no-name player he would never have been in as much bullshit for it. guaranteed

  • Anthony Kish
    Anthony Kish 10 months ago

    Tkachuk is one of the best players on the flames. He has had his fair share of cheap shots against himself from other players that have injured him way passed the point of doughty. p.s. Doughty is not exactly a clean player when you get right down to it.

  • Ron Brown
    Ron Brown 10 months ago

    go after all the little scrawny wimp players in the league please, they all need there bells rung and crunched to scare them back to the minors, I liked Sean Avery's list, one by one crunch them all, watch them cry their way off the ice

  • Ron Brown
    Ron Brown 10 months ago

    the league and it's players have gone soft, it's a penalty not a suspension smh and doughty is a somewhat tough guy so get your ass up and quit bitching, I've had worse hits on me in minor leagues that didn't even end up in pensltys because I got back up quick and continued playing, such whinny bitches and is why I don't watch the NHL anymore

  • Proxyy7

    My thoughts on this: Tkachuk knew Doughty was there. They had been playing physically against each other all night. Tkachuk had his back turned, and was expecting Doughty to play the body. Instead, Doughty cut further to his left to play the puck as it was going slower than expected, and was thus going in a different direction than when Tkachuk last saw him. Tkachuk wanted to make a hard physical play to keep position, but instead of where he expected Doughty's hip/hands would be, there was nothing there and momentum carried it up into Doughty's face.
    It was intended to be a hard play, but I don't think it was one intended to be as vicious as it ended up being. Tkachuk is young and plays hard, and as he gets stronger, older, and wiser he will rely on these kinds of tactics less and less. Also keep in mind that he's 19 years old, playing against some of the world's most highly tuned athletes, some nearly twice his age, and also that sometimes kids do stupid things.

    Doughty deserved it anyways. Kings are a fairly dirty team. Dustin Brown being a prime example. Doughty not a stranger to throwing dirty hits.

  • Proud2BCanadian

  • Rob Supeene
    Rob Supeene 10 months ago +2

    There is a whole lot of whining going on about how dirty it was,and it definitely was, but every single team in the NHL would gladly welcome Tkachuk with open arms . Even Conner McPiggy and the Edmonton Oinkers Doughty was up and fine for his next shift.

    What about Tkachuk getting double teamed on the boards after the whistle? no call on those either

    • Aaron Goodon
      Aaron Goodon 9 months ago

      I do see how cocky he is and no I dont think the elbow was ok. There was a reply to me that I was going to respond to but it isnt here anymore. Do you know what envious means? In the reply that doesnt appear to be here anymore tells me you dont. And I can probably speak for alot of Flames fans when I say the elbow was intentional and he shouldnt have done it but the league got him and Kings fans and Kings players cant seem to move on. Your just salty and if Tkachuk was on LA you would be on his side.

      Aaron Goodon 9 months ago

      +skate smokesurf dude you gotta relax. Listen to what people say and don't just go off the handle about random bullshit. There are lots of players who chew on their guards... Why is tkachuk the only one you attack? I honestly am starting to think you are envious of the flames and act like you hate him to be different

    • Anthony Kish
      Anthony Kish 9 months ago

      skate smokesurf I'm saying that he isn't expected to lead the team but he does and he is one of the toughest players at such a young age and people don't realize how young he is by how he plays by how confident and tough he plays but whatever

    • Anthony Kish
      Anthony Kish 9 months ago

    Dirty as player should get suspensend for at least 6 games. Kid needs to watch it before someone puts him out of his place.

    • Killzone87
      Killzone87 10 months ago

      David McCalla If you watch closely it looks more like Tkachuk was turning his body to protect his body position and ended up elbowing him by accident, not deserving of a 6 game suspension at all.

    "Blatant elbow in the face". Cmon. Penalty. Yes. Shoulder hits the chin. Doughty threw his head back like he's been shot. The title of this video is silly.

    Downvoted video. Reason: elbow hit the chest/ribs, not the face. The left shoulderpad of Matt Tkachuk hits Drew Doughty's jaw.

  • Devin Coles

    The kid has some amazing skill to his game, and I love the physical aspect of his game too. Hopefully as time goes by he is able to play a skilled/pest game with less events like that. Also, for those calling him the next'd love to see Tkachuk in the top 5 of league scoring. lol
