Video: Daniel Sedin proves hi-sticking occurred by showing lost tooth

Nov 25, 2013, 11:41 PM EDT

One of the most amusing traditions in hockey is when fans cheer their own players being bloodied to promote a two-minute hi-sticking* minor into a double-minor. Daniel Sedin was the victim of an errant stick that only generated a two-minute power play on Monday, but it was memorable, as he revealed the tooth he lost in the process:

It’s hard to think of many people who are as flippant about losing their teeth as hockey players (aside from fictional characters such as Charlie Kelly from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). It obviously comes with the territory, then.

* – Yup, it’s “hi-sticking,” not “high-sticking.” Moving on …

    It is 4 minutes with blood, does the same go for losing a tooth?

    Watching this game now and I am disappointed in the officials. Seems like teams that play LA somehow always get the short end of the stick with the officials.

      Is it possible to have a tooth bashed out without blood loss? I giess if it busts partially off.

      Amen. Want a good example? Watch game 5 of the 2012 WCF.

      Canucks got the short end of the stick with 8 penalties called against the Kings? You’re so full of crap.

        Kings deserved pretty much every penalty they got. It was actually a well-officiated game.

    The rule is still dumb to me. blood or no blood doesn’t mean a high-sticking was more severe than others. It should be a judgment call by the ref. if there is blood, it may ease his decision to give 4 minutes, but how many times do we see very dangerous high sticking plays that end up with only 2 minutes or even, none.

    To hell with Daniel’s ‘Made in Sweden’ tooth, as things like that are just a part of the deal. The bottom line friend is that we need to close these people out and we need to do that right now ! GO KINGS GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    big deal, it’s a loose cap…let’s institute the death penalty

    We did it friends, just like I knew we would ! :) About the only disappointment was when Martinez hit the post in the 2nd period, as that would’ve likely ‘sealed the deal’ right then and there eh ? Regardless, these people have been served yet another wake up call to the new ‘reality’ which is the dynamic Pacific Division … and you gotta love that man ! :)

    WE ARE ALL CANUCKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

      Friends, it was almost two weeks ago now when comrade Quick went down with a groin injury and so many of these PHT vultures were predicting the imminent demise of our beloved tream. Well lo and behold, just look at what’s been unfolding ever since eh ? :) As I testified at the time, never for a ‘minute’ did I harbor any reservations that comrade Scrivens wasn’t up for the challenge …


      blomfeld – Nov 14, 2013 at 3:05 PM

      Here’s your chance Scrivens … now make us proud !

      We Kings’ fans wish Scrivens ‘all the best’ as he now takes over from Quick for the foreseeable future. And while this is probably a bit ‘nerve racking’ for some, I for one have ‘every’ confidence in our new starting goalie ! :)

      GO SCRIVENS !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


      The bottom line in hockey, as it is with everything in life, is that the ‘tough’ get going when the going gets tough … and we Kings ‘exemplify’ that better than anyone else in the business today ! I have to say that I’m just so proud of our team and everything which we’ve done, as well as ‘that’ which we hope to still achieve ! :)

      GO KINGS GO !!! … TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
