Gilbert making a sandwich

We’ve seen some bizarre stick incidents this season and Thursday night added itself to the list as Tom Gilbert and Kris Versteeg combined to make a rather odd conjunction between Versteeg’s stick and Gilbert’s head. My initial reaction was “How the hell did that happen?” (direct quote)

Basically the two get tied up in front of the Minnesota net after a faceoff, Versteeg’s stick comes up after he gets tangled with Darroll Powe and by some sort of voodoo the stick goes through the ear loop of Gilbert’s helmet. It takes a while to figure out how exactly that happened but the end result is a very uncomfortable looking Gilbert being facially caressed by a stick.

Take a look.

In sum: Tom Gilbert is not a happy camper and Versteeg commits the most obvious high stick in the history of time.

With that, what’s the weirdest stick blooper you’ve seen happen happen during a game?

  1. Last year in the playoffs, Henrik Sedin gets lampooned like Gilbert. No call by the refs even as he skates with the stick stuck in his visor.

  2. This has happened to me in rec league. A puck got deflected high. I reached to catch it with my glove the same time an opposing player went to play it with his stick. End result….his stick getting threaded through my helmet ear hole and him feeling shame for 2min.
