Matthew Tkachuk is a great example of a pest player who plays for Florida. Fans know it will never be boring when he's on the ice, however, recently Tkachuk has recently crossed the line, and has embarrassed himself while disrespecting an opponent.

Tkachuk Attempts to Draw a Penalty



During last night's game between the Panthers and the Leafs, there was a brief exchange after a play between Justin Holl and Tkachuk. After the play, Tkachuk bumped into Holl, hoping to get a reaction, Holl responded by lightly shoving his shoulder. This prompted Tkachuk to dramatically snap his head back to attempt to sell a but-end to the face, in the hopes of drawing a penalty.

Take a look at the play:



Sometimes a good sell-job can cost a team a lot. We saw it during last year's playoffs when Tampa Bay sold a few plays to draw penalties. This is a pretty embarrassing and disrespectful part of the game. Tkachuk was lucky that he did not receive a penalty for embellishment. We believe that more should be done to punish players who attempt to violate the integrity of the game.
