- Bench penalties like too many men on the ice or abuse of officials
- A coincidental minor with one player getting a second penalty (usually called the "extra two")
- Penalties on the goalie, since he can't really go sit in the box
When I was looking at my stats database, I wondered who wound up in the box in these scenarios. Was it always the same guy or set of guys?
Obviously, this has no meaning whatsoever, other than maybe to tell us who should be named "Least Likely to Kill a Penalty", but hey, it's the middle of summer. What else are you going to read about?
Here are the players who have served the most penalties that they didn't commit - I'm listing everyone that has served 8 or more.
|Team||Player||# of Times|
|Maple Leafs||81 KESSEL||8|
|Blue Jackets||14 TORRES||8|
The other Penguins on the list include Tyler Kennedy and Geno Malkin, but they're further down.
