There's a line in hockey that you just don't cross, taunting a player that you just injured while skating off the ice is one of them but that didn't stop an NCAA player from crossing that line

Over the weekend, the Arizona State Sun Devils took on the LindenWood Lions in which a Lions player Hunter
Johanneso seriously injured ASU star Lucas Sillinger take a look:


#21 taunts the crowd after a hard hit of #asu star player #lucassillinger which knocked him unconscious when his head hit the ice #hockeyhits #collegehockey



The call on the play was an elbow to the head and a 5 minute major was assessed on the play. As the lions player was on his way off the ice Johannes taunted crowd, seemingly proud of the fact that Sillinger was still lying on the ice.

Sillinger was woozy and need major help as he attempted to regain his skates. He didn't look good as he was helped off the ice.

I get emotions run high, but in that situation, you're not only embarrassing your team, but putting a major target on your back the next time the two teams face.

There are things you should never do, taunting in this manner would be one of them.
