Florida Panthers MacKenzie Weegar had a front row seat to watch Jake Evans' violent (and scary) fall late in the game last night:


Fortunately, all indications are that the Canadiens' forward is relatively OK.

On the other hand, an unfortunate event drew attention on social networks. According to many, Weegar didn't do anything wrong on the sequence (to provoke Evans' fall), but he was very unclassy with his reaction afterwards.


"Weegar didn't do anything wrong on the play, but it was ridiculous (and embarrassing) what was coming out of his mouth afterwards, while a player (Evans) is writhing in pain on the ice." - Matt Drake

Indeed, if you look closely, you realize that Weegar was yelling this, while Evans was lying on the ice writhing in pain:

"This is a fucking joke. This is a joke, he's perfectly fine." - MacKenzie Weegar

The Panthers d-man, instead of being concerned about Evans' health (like his teammates and like the rest of us), instead improvised himself as a doctor and practically implied that Jake Evans was faking his pain.

It's a big deal on social media and we can definitely say that the comments were definitely not classy.

So much for sportsmanship...
