If you were wondering what former NHL goalie* Peter Skudra has been up to, you probably didn’t expect the answer to be “He’s a KHL coach who fought another KHL coach.”
That unlikely scene took place at a KHL pre-season game, as Puck Daddy’s Sean Leahy passes along word that Skudra (coaching Torpedo Nizhny) got into a scuffle with Yevgeni Popikhin (HC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk) midway through a Saturday game.
The KHL tends to generate some odd moments compared to the more buttoned-down NHL, but this is something else.
It’s a sight to behold:
Leahy also unearthed video of the fight from this angle.
* – You’d most likely remember him from his Pittsburgh Penguins or Vancouver Canucks days.
