Cal Clutterbuck Punches A Ref

It's Movember, which means that the Minnesota Wild are going to add to their usual badass selves with mustaches. The most famous mustache on display of course is Cal Clutterbuck, whose 'stache has its Twitter account with 1800 followers.

Apparently the mustache has a mind of its own because tonight against Vancouver Clutterbuck punched a referee.

While it was an accident and Maxim Lapierre ducked, it's hard to think the NHL and Brendan Shanahan will be kind to someone who punched one of their referees. We'll see what happens in the coming days but for now the State of Hockey can be content with the Wild beating the Vancouver Canucks (without Roberto Luongo) 5-1.

And that's a 5-1 win without getting a point from Dany Heatley, Mikko Koivu or Devin Setoguchi. Matt Cullen scored two goals and the often invisible second line showed up for Minnesota against a sievetastic Cory Schneider.

11/4 UPDATE: According to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, Clutterbuck won't face punishment from the league.

  1. If this is deemed anything more than an accident I am officially off the Shannabandwagon.

    Smart linesmen stay out of these things until the combatants tire out or one is cleary at an advantage.

    Neither of these conditions applied and the linesman got what he deserved.
