Temper tantrums are relatively common among children (and some adults when they don’t get their way), but this Canadian junior hockey player’s meltdown is so multifaceted, you simply have to see it for yourself. The incident unfolded after a fight broke up between 17-year-old Ryan Hutchinson and an opponent he was facing-off against on an opposing team.
Hutchinson, who is a defense-man for the Kingston Frontenacs, was checked into the boards by Jake Evans, who plays for the Erie Otters. Considering this surprise move, Hutchinson then began throwing punches. In the end, he was ejected, which was, according to Yahoo! Sports, the catalyst for his subsequent meltdown.
Yahoo! has a description of what unfolded:
First, Hutchinson tried to boot an Otters helmet strewn on the ice into the stands. That turned out to be a total failure, with the helmet causing Hutchinson to slip an land on his rear end on the ice in front of a rabid Erie crowd.
With the embarrassment now setting in, Hutchinson was escorted off the ice, slamming his own helmet to the ice as he trotted off. Still not appeased, the bulky defenseman found a chair and tossed it toward the exit doors, WWE style.
Of course, it was caught on video. Watch it, below:
