Joe Veleno of the Detroit Red Wings is the talk of hockey social media circles today, and not for anything even remotely good. The forward, who is playing for Team Canada at the IIHF World Championships, used his skate to literally stomp on the leg of New Jersey's Nino Niederreiter, who is with Team Switzerland. To make matters worse, there was no call on Veleno.

Kane Chimes In

The incident caught the attention of Evander Kane of the Edmonton Oilers, who called it embarrassing and disgusting. Kane went on the say that things like this are why fighting should never be taken out of hockey.
