New York Islanders forward JG Pageau is generously listed as 5’10” and 180 pounds on his NHL.com profile page.
Pageau looked every inch of it during a late third-period fracas he instigated with Zdeno Chara and Tom Wilson, two of the tallest players in the league, during the New York Islanders’ 1-0 loss at Capital One Arena.
Trying to get his team going, Pageau started mouthing off and getting into the two Capitals’ faces. It did not end well.
Chara punched Pageau in the face with his own stick. Wilson began laughing before throwing a punch. Both Capitals players ganged up on Pageau. No Islanders came to his rescue.

Here are some of the fun comments from Instagram:
Perhaps Pageau got the last laugh, however, because he took Wilson off the ice for matching roughing penalties – though that was a questionable call.
