Minnesota Wild forward Ryan Hartman always plays on the edge and sometimes it lands himself in trouble, as was the case on Saturday against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Nearly six minutes into the first period, Hartman took the puck in on a partial breakaway towards the Golden Knights net. With all his momentum going forward, Hartman skates right through Golden Knights goaltender Logan Thompson.


Thompson appeared to look hurt on the play, but thankfully for the Golden Knights, who are in a playoff race, he remained in the game. Meanwhile, Ryan Hartman received a two-minute minor.


"Ryan Hartman absolutely steam rolls Logan Thompson on a shorthanded drive to the net.

Thompson went sliding into the corner. Hartman is given 2 minutes for goalie interference, and Thompson is staying in the game." Jesse Granger said.


There's no doubt that the entire Vegas Golden Knights roster aren't happy that Ryan Hartman just steamrolled their goaltender and while Thompson is not hurt, it'll be interesting to see if they will go after the Wild forward during the remainder of the game or when they play each other again on April 12th.
