Matthew Tkachuk FTW

Author Jason Troy ( ago)
haha Rookie Keith Tkachuk 2.0 is awesome.

Author Astro the Owl ( ago)
God damnit Tkachuk needs to chill

Author Zarkon ( ago)
he better get suspended 1-2 games...otherwise some goons on other teams are going to fawk him up

Author skate smokesurf ( ago)
Go to hell tkachuk

Author Anthony Kish ( ago)
this was just one play that happened on drew doughty that happened to get caught. I can guarantee that if Tkachuk hit a no-name player he would never have been in as much bullshit for it. guaranteed

Author Anthony Kish ( ago)
Tkachuk is one of the best players on the flames. He has had his fair share of cheap shots against himself from other players that have injured him way passed the point of doughty. p.s. Doughty is not exactly a clean player when you get right down to it.

Author Ron Brown ( ago)
go after all the little scrawny wimp players in the league please, they all need there bells rung and crunched to scare them back to the minors, I liked Sean Avery's list, one by one crunch them all, watch them cry their way off the ice

Author Ron Brown ( ago)
the league and it's players have gone soft, it's a penalty not a suspension smh and doughty is a somewhat tough guy so get your ass up and quit bitching, I've had worse hits on me in minor leagues that didn't even end up in pensltys because I got back up quick and continued playing, such whinny bitches and is why I don't watch the NHL anymore

Author Landon Lawrence ( ago)
Why is there only one flame coming to help Matthew against four kings where's the other flames

Author CJets Aviation & Spotting ( ago)
I was at that game!

Author Proxyy7 ( ago)
My thoughts on this: Tkachuk knew Doughty was there. They had been playing physically against each other all night. Tkachuk had his back turned, and was expecting Doughty to play the body. Instead, Doughty cut further to his left to play the puck as it was going slower than expected, and was thus going in a different direction than when Tkachuk last saw him. Tkachuk wanted to make a hard physical play to keep position, but instead of where he expected Doughty's hip/hands would be, there was nothing there and momentum carried it up into Doughty's face.

It was intended to be a hard play, but I don't think it was one intended to be as vicious as it ended up being. Tkachuk is young and plays hard, and as he gets stronger, older, and wiser he will rely on these kinds of tactics less and less. Also keep in mind that he's 19 years old, playing against some of the world's most highly tuned athletes, some nearly twice his age, and also that sometimes kids do stupid things.

awsome !!!!!!

Author pitonsxxl ( ago)
ref is blind

Author Santiago Jauregui ( ago)
Pearson gave Tkachuk some karma there

Author Cole Fahey ( ago)
I guess Tkachuk didn't think he deserved the Norris either, go figure.

Author Sergio Mauricio ( ago)
That was dirty af, 2 game suspension wasn't enough for that...

Author dbzwyoat ( ago)
pavel bure would be proud

Author sssssfGify ( ago)
Hahaha, nice job kid!!

Author Musty Shackleford ( ago)
Doughty deserved it anyways. Kings are a fairly dirty team. Dustin Brown being a prime example. Doughty not a stranger to throwing dirty hits.

Author THE BIGDEE ( ago)
How the hell did the ref miss that, he was standing right next to it?

Author joyfulvulture ( ago)
lol he did that with his mouthpiece hanging out his mouth... somebody should do the same thing to him and make him swallow half his teeth.

Author Proud2BCanadian ( ago)
Wow! He definitely should have been suspended longer for that dirty move. Completely unnecessary and stupid.

Author Johnny Blade ( ago)
doughty is a douchebag but Tkachuk shouldn't have done that.

Author Dree 1 ( ago)
Good move tkachuck!!!!!

Author D Bogz ( ago)
Doughty not mouthing off after that

Author hortys 2 ( ago)
i hate tkachuk. and i hope the flames bust out first round of playoffs ill be cheering against them in Airdrie!!

Author EMPTYCLOTH ( ago)
not even dirty last angle proves he just put his arm up to guard and doughty runs into him and sells it

Author Crots53 ( ago)
Embellishment x100 for Doughty maybe he should shut his trap once in a while

Author Crispee Towne ( ago)
Clean. What is this, the NBA?

Author TK ( ago)
I love you, Matty, but that was not cool.

Author bobby wasabi ( ago)
Looked to me he was trying to turn his body in doughty but was too far away and elbow came up.

Author The Mexitroll ( ago)
More like Drew Pouty amirite?

Author Daniel Hardy ( ago)
what a player Gotta love a young kid not afraid to play dirty 😂

Author darksidelead ( ago)
Typical flamers

Author Lerone Williams ( ago)
Like Father like son lol

Author OmqCush ( ago)
everyone should stop talking about how Tkachuk is such a " dirty player" when he never does anything that bad

Author Rob Supeene ( ago)
There is a whole lot of whining going on about how dirty it was,and it definitely was, but every single team in the NHL would gladly welcome Tkachuk with open arms . Even Conner McPiggy and the Edmonton Oinkers Doughty was up and fine for his next shift.

Author Piper Kemmerer ( ago)
I was shocked at the elbow and then laughing over whoever took him down on the wall.

Author Aaron Goodon ( ago)
What about Tkachuk getting double teamed on the boards after the whistle? no call on those either

Author David McCalla ( ago)
Dirty as player should get suspensend for at least 6 games. Kid needs to watch it before someone puts him out of his place.

Author The Angry Canuck ( ago)
Anybody else see Craig Button say that he doesn't think this was an elbow to the face? lmfao!

Author TheGamingGriffin ( ago)
Damn tkachuk is such a mystery to me 1 moment he's making beautiful plays and the next he's elbowing star players man...

Author Looch1717 ( ago)
And the dumbfuck ref misses it ofc. Worst reffed year in the NHL ever.

Author sizeOVERstrength ( ago)
he a good player but that was dirty, also why wear a mouth guard if your not gonna keep it in your mouth?

Author Josh Vienneau ( ago)
Doughty is starting to embellish like Subban now. Yes it was and elbow and probably hurt but damn he sold that even threw his stick.

Author misterrr7 ( ago)
this kid is so dirty

Author Mark Bryson ( ago)
"Blatant elbow in the face". Cmon. Penalty. Yes. Shoulder hits the chin. Doughty threw his head back like he's been shot. The title of this video is silly.

Author dmkwils ( ago)
that was not dirty. clean hit with the elbow.

Author rey1jj ( ago)

Author Brian Farrar ( ago)
This is what happens when fighting is taken out of the game, players think they can do this with no real retaliation and they're right.

Author G15-TV ( ago)
this kid should try to do that to a defencement like weber lol he would find his man !

Author Radko Gudas ( ago)
Deserved it.

Author DreadX10 ( ago)
Downvoted video. Reason: elbow hit the chest/ribs, not the face. The left shoulderpad of Matt Tkachuk hits Drew Doughty's jaw.

Author Cal Bertram ( ago)
Tkachuk was looking at the ref the whole time he knew he wasn't getting caught on the ice

Author Ryan Ashwood ( ago)
God I love that kid!

Author 11DNA11 ( ago)
It was an elbow, no doubt. Tkachuk is the kind who you just hate to play against and always plays on the very edge. Just like Chris Pronger.

Author Johnny Dong ( ago)
it was a clean hit, heads up son

Author mushroomroom007 ( ago)
The league shouldn't have to handle this issue. The LA Kings will handle it. That being said, I'd take tkachuk on my team any day

Author Devin Coles ( ago)
The kid has some amazing skill to his game, and I love the physical aspect of his game too. Hopefully as time goes by he is able to play a skilled/pest game with less events like that. Also, for those calling him the next'd love to see Tkachuk in the top 5 of league scoring. lol

Author Michael Chobot ( ago)
Clearly shoulder to the face. Where is this magical and elusive elbow? Doughty wasn't paying attention and ran into a wall.

Author Xerdoz ( ago)

Author Breaky ( ago)

Author Anna Grindeland ( ago)
Tkachuk is so talented. I hope he drops this tough guy act before he becomes the next Marchand.

Author Joel Hopkin ( ago)
Something something apples not falling for from trees

Author Alec Wilkening ( ago)
kid deserves to have his knee blown out. where's matt cooke when you need him?

Author Das Butcher ( ago)
Tkachuk is a garbage player.

Author Alex8Ovie ( ago)
doughty is a puss 👋🏼

Author wahrheitverdad ( ago)
As a Flames fan, I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. I don't know though, that looked pretty blatant.

Author Nickels And Schizznixxx ( ago)
Hate both the Kings and the Flames. I'm just here to be entertained.

Author Kenzo Revane ( ago)
I don't think he actually aimed for Doughty's face, it's just the way it happened. Im an Oilers fan, so Tkachuk can suck a fat one, but I honestly don't think the hit to the face was intentional

Author Gibby Webster ( ago)
Matthew Tkachuk is my hero for this

Author Mike 17 ( ago)
Still gotta give credit where credits due. Having a great rookie year.

Author Bear Experiment ( ago)
I smell a 2 game suspension, especially because there was no call on the play.

Author D. Dalb ( ago)

Author Unstumpable Trumpable ( ago)
At least he'll fit in with the flames.

Author patienbear ( ago)
I hope this rat gets destroyed

Author dany heatley ( ago)
Haha Beauty!

Author oifwarveteran ( ago)
Love it

Author Arlette Samuel ( ago)
talk.about hit and then run

Author Adam Vetterl ( ago)
As a Canucks fan, it pains me to know we passed this kid up

Author Juan Frusciante ( ago)
Like father, like son. Such a dirty play. What an ass move...

Author Billy Parks ( ago)
I don't understand this kid. He already has half a dozen teams looking for his head. The league has him on the radar now. Players will engage him and he'll have to fight or run/turtle. If he wont stand up for himself he adds another dimension to his reputation and ends up putting targets on his teammate's backs. If he set out to be that type of player, mission accomplished.

Author Lgd1993 J ( ago)
lmao watch Calgary miss the playoffs somehow

Author Jared R ( ago)
I always love seeing teammates get actual retribution instead of a shoving match. Good on ya, Pearson.

Author Cranges McBasketball ( ago)
That'll shut doughty up from chirping for a while...

Author John Smith ( ago)
I was pissed when Nucks didn't take him, but I happy now

Author Sebastien ( ago)
He better get 2 to 5 games.

Author MrLurkin4life ( ago)
I hope this kid gets a good old fashion ass kicking. He needs it.

Author Chocolate Moose ( ago)
I'm happy that most of my fellow Flames fans are not condoning this. He's too good a player to play like this. A suspension could do him some good, even if the team suffers.

Author Bear ( ago)

Author Chocolate Moose ( ago)
Ehhh, I love Chucky but he's gotta be careful of going down a bad path. There is being a pest and goon, and then there is being dirty. Skate the line properly, my friend. Don't make us Flames fan not like what you're doing out there, cause you're having an amazing rookie season. Doughty definitely did sell that, but Tkachuk shouldn't have done it in the first place. 2 game suspension wouldn't surprise me.

Author Tim Latour ( ago)
Enjoy your first suspension

Author Assmuncher iPod ( ago)
Haha Pearson got in a good elbow

Author FormallyCrippled ( ago)
kleen hit. 41 games for embellishment. laine is better.

Author Soouljah ( ago)
After a beautiful embellish like that by Doughty, let's see him win a 2nd straight Norris somehow like he did last year (which never should've happened)

Author ScubaSteve ( ago)
I'm a flames fan and like the kid but he's been playing too much like a goon this year

Author ABDStillLegit ( ago)
I'm a flames fan (and a Tkachuk fan) but I didn't like that one bit. I still want him be a trouble-maker and get under everyone's skin, but an intentional elbow is worth a suspension. You're better than that, Chucky!

Author The_Chipmunk_ ( ago)
did you see that sneaky move, ref didn't even see it - clever ! :-)

Author Dookers ( ago)
League's taking names. Particularly guys in the West. And Tkachuk will get his. Sooner than later. Repeatedly.
