I have an appreciation for guys who play physical and defense oriented, as they don't get the glory. However, I will remember last night, it reminded me of that one playoffs game in the Jack where an Icedog (forget who now) smoked a 67's player with a hit right in front of the Dogs bench, then proceeded to pummel said player in a fight, and that player ended up breaking his leg in the fight. The Jack was ear-splitting loud after that. Same as last night. Very clean check on the Petes' player. A thunderous check. Haydon was immediately challenged and did not disappoint, with the knockout punch delivered. Once again, the arena was rocking, Haydon was amped as he went to the sin bin, and I thought, geez, this could be a game turning point. But it was for not. Haydon looked awkward last night a few times on D, but, overall, he always delivered big effort, and I wish him all the best in the future.
