NHL Player's Stick Gets Stuck Between Opponent's Skates

Oct 17, 2015 By Jake Brannon

Sometimes, even in the midst of tense competition, something so crazy happens that you can't help but laugh. That's what Connor Murphy and Jason Zucker experienced when Murphy's stick got caught in between both of Zucker's skates in a recent hockey match between the Arizona Coyotes and the Minnesota Wild. 

The players are as perplexed as the viewers, considering the space between the skate's boot and blade is only 1 - 2 inches wide. The Coyotes went on to lose the match, marking their first loss this season. As a defenceman, this defeat must have been frustrating for Murphy, who was temporarily unable to block. Luckily, no scoring happened while both players were out of commission, and you can even see Zucker laughing about it with the referee.
