Watch: Out of Control Hockey Fight Ends With Referee on a Stretcher

Not cool.



A seriously vicious fight broke out during the 2013 world ball hockey semifinals last weekend in St. John's, Newfoundland. Well, it was really more of a one-sided attack.

Justin Pender, a player for the Canadian men’s team, went after an opposing player and began beating him mercilessly after the Czech Republic scored an empty-net goal to clinch a 5-1 victory.

The attack "begins with a cross-check to a Czech forward that's taunting him; it ended with a referee on a stretcher," the Yahoo! Sport blog "Puck Daddy" notes.

The Telegram has more:

Canadian defenceman Justin Pender of St. John's was given a double match penalty with one second left after an incident that resulted in a game official being taken off the floor on a stretcher. The official was reportedly injured as he tried to intervene when Pender tangled with a Czech player after the winners scored an empty-net goal. Czech goaltender Lukas Heczko was also involved.

Pender later apologized for his behavior on Twitter.
