Matt Hendricks largely goes unnoticed in most arenas, as his gritty game generates little attention.
Florida Panthers fans notice him.
Hendricks delivered the check that injured 2015 Calder-winner Aaron Ekblad, so it’s no surprise that Panthers fans greeted the Edmonton Oilers grinder with hearty boos on Monday.
Erik Gudbranson presented a different greeting in the form of the fight you can see in the video above.
Hendricks received a three-game suspension for that hit. You can see the check and the explanation for that punishment below.
Update: It’s actually Gudbranson who might be having a rougher night.
