Video: Teenager throws hockey stick at referee

stick throwTemper, young man, temper… This Lithuanian teen is in hot water for blowing his cool at the 2013 Under-18 boys hockey world championship tournament in Estonia.

Cameron Smith of Yahoo! Sports writes:

Lithuanian forward Danielius Nomanovas reacted to a 3-2 loss to Great Britain in the most inappropriate and inexcusable way possible: He hurled his stick at a referee, with a heck of a lot of velocity, at that.

As you can see in the video [below], the shot was most definitely felt by the referee, who went down to a knee so he could clutch his shoulder after Nomanovas’ stick drilled him in the upper body. The attack also elicited a rapid response from a British player, though he was kept from getting to Nomanovas by another ref.’
