Over the weekend multiple reports began to surface that Trevor Zegras had made an inappropriate comment to Troy Stecher. After the two became engaged in a scrum, it appeared as though Zegras made a comment about Stecher's father who passed in 2020.

In the video you can see the shock of Zegras' own teammates face, and Zegras received a 10 minute misconduct on the play. Initial reports stated that Zegras comment was directed at Stecher's deceased father.
After the play Stecher was furious and even engaged the Anaheim bench, who wanted to know what was said. Stecher can be again seen pointing to the sky and making reference to Zegras' comments.
Yesterday evening though Craig Morgan, an Arizona beat reporter tried to clarify the comments made by Zegras. According to Morgan, the comments weren't directed at Stecher's father, but they were deemed 'inappropriate'.
I can confirm via the Coyotes that Anaheim forward Trevor Zegras did not say anything about Troy Stecher's father during their dust-up last night but, per a team source, he crossed the line with "some very inappropriate comments."

Stecher has declined comment on the topic.

While many were willing to take Morgan's word for it, Brad Marchand had other things on his mind.
Shut your pie hole Craig

Marchand has always been an outspoken ambassador for the game and it's clear he feels a certain type of way about Morgan's comments. Stecher is not known for being a hot head, so something clearly set him off. It's possible we will never know what was actually said, but come April 6th when the two teams meet again, Zegras may have hell to pay.
