Jason Zucker makes a dangerous gesture towards Arber Xhekaj and the referee's reaction makes the rounds

A specific sequence from last night's game is currently making the rounds on the web, as the veteran Pittsburgh Penguins forward (who obviously doesn't know Arber Xhekaj) started looking for trouble with "Jacko".

Some even mentioned that he was going to try to drop down the gloves with Xhekaj, which was the worst idea ever for the #16 Penguins.

Zucker played with fire and made a dangerous move for his own safety

One thing is for sure, you can clearly see that Zucker tried to go after the young, giant-sized defenseman, but a referee arrived quickly to stop the Penguins forward from jumping on Xhekaj.


The referee knew very well that it would have ended badly.

As my colleague Keven Mawn aptly mentions, it will have been a very wise decision on his part, because it could have indeed gone very badly for Jason Zucker.

See the video, and notice Xhekaj's reaction. It's good stuff:


Zucker can thank the ref in question, he saved him a lot of trouble.
