The Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League won their season opener against the Niagara IceDogs 3-1, and have proceeded to lose each of the subsequent 10 games, so head coach Paul Fixter is not in the best of moods.

The team's recent 7-2 road loss to the Greyhounds of Sault Ste. Marie seems to have been the final straw, as the coach came into the postgame press conference ready to explode, and quickly found a reason when a reporter complimented the team's effort on the ice.

Fixture has since issued an apology on the team's website for using such harsh language.

"I apologize for my use of profanity after last evening's loss to the Greyhounds. I could have chosen my words more carefully, however, I stand by my players, the organization and the fans of the Sudbury Wolves Hockey Club. The coaching staff is a passionate group and we feel the stress of losing. We are working diligently to strive to improve our record and make the fans of the Sudbury Wolves proud."
