During a recent Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) game, Salavat Yulaev player Alexander Radulov suddenly turned around and delivered a hefty blade-slap with his stick to the face of goalie coach, Ilari Näckel.
After, Radulov waves his left hand as if to acknowledge that he was responsible and then everything carries on as if nothing had happened. Hard to figure what to make of this. Was he blowing off steam? After all how much interaction would Radulov have the goalie.
