Sean Avery’s controversial “sloppy seconds” comment about other players’ girlfriends got him suspended from the National Hockey League.
Will Alex Burrows and Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks face a similar fate for their agitating comments about a Blues’ girlfriend?
Burrows and Kesler were heard on the CBC broadcast making agitating comments about David Backes’ partner during Game 1 of their first-round playoff series on Wednesday in Vancouver.
The clip later appeared on YouTube.
“Hey, Kelly’s a great gal,” Burrows yelled.
Centre Ryan Kesler piped up right after with a “Tell Kelly I said ‘Hi.’”
Kyle Lescisin, a former goalie for the Simon Fraser University hockey team, said Burrows went too far.
“I think that insulting the family of the players is crossing a line,” Lescisin said.
“The league should give him a warning at the very least.”
