There was once a time Caps fans believed Karl Alzner was a nice, humble Canadian boy from Burnaby, British Columbia. Since signing with the Montreal Canadiens, however, we’ve seen a different side of Alzner: a savage, take-no-prisoners enforcer who has an addiction to face-punching.
Alzner, who is not taking any of your ish this season, got in his second fight in less than a month Wednesday night against the Dallas Stars. And he totally started it.
Here’s what happened. Brett Ritchie boarded Canadiens defenseman Noah Juulsen. Ritchie, was like C’mon, dawg, you turned away from the hit at the last second. What am I supposed to do?
Habs forward Charles Hudon engaged Ritchie with some shoves. Then Alzner was like Here comes the pain train and started throwing hands (hands, might I remind, that cannot open pickle jars anymore).
The fight did not go well for Karl. Alzner and his blue Canadiens helmet just absorbed punch after punch after punch.
Alzner also fought Steve Downie as a member of the Capitals in 2012.
