When the Dallas Stars hosted the Washington Capitals back on January 21st, Dmitry Orlov received a double-minor for high-sticking Jamie Benn. As Orlov tried to stick-check the Dallas captain, the Caps defenseman missed, striking Benn in the face.
Benn broke his nose on the play, but the story doesn’t end there. Several weeks later, the Stars revealed that Orlov was quite contrite about the mistake, showing good sportsmanship in the process.
Kids, take note!
