You never know what you’re going to get when you go to an AHL game.
Maybe you see a scrub who was placed on waivers or sent down, or a rehabilitating top two forward.
Or, maybe, you’ll just witness an act of utter embarrassment by some guy you probably never heard of.
If you’ve never heard of Dane Byers, it’s because he’s played in all of six NHL games in his professional career.
To his credit, however, the 25-year-old is captain of the Springfield Falcons.
But that doesn’t warrant this behaviour a few nights ago:
The incident occurred Saturday night. (Yes, this moved awfully slow on to our site, but it’s still worth the look and ridicule.) The best part is the blurb of Byers “wanting” that pest Trevor Gillies who apparently is stirring up shit even with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the affiliate to the New York Islanders.
