Video: Anson Carter imitates unhappy Ken Hitchcock after awkward bench interview

Jan 16, 2014, 10:16 PM EDT

Oh, those interviews between whistles with an NHL head coach can be awkward.

During Thursday’s game between the L.A. Kings and St. Louis Blues, Ken Hitchcock delivered a strong critique of his team’s play to that point, when questioned by NBC Sports’ Brian Engblom. He wasn’t happy about a great many things that his players weren’t doing. Now, it may have made for an uncomfortable 30 seconds or so.

But former NHLer Anson Carter, on the NBCSN, brought some humor to the situation, doing his own high-pitched impersonation of Hitchcock. Carter does have experience with Hitchcock. They worked together with the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2006-07.
