Canucks’ Prust calls out Devils’ Farnham for fighting 19-year-old

Monday November 9th, 2015

Sunday night’s game between the New Jersey Devils and Vancouver Canucks, which New Jersey won 4–3, had some drama.

So much drama, one player even had to take to Twitter to express his opinion.

The beef started out in the second period when Jordin Tootoo initiated a fight with Canucks forward Derek Dorsett before the puck even dropped on a face off.

Both players received a five-minute major for fighting and a 10-minute misconduct.

But the chippiness didn’t stop there, as just two minutes later Devils left wing Bobby Farnham, who was just picked up by New Jersey off waivers on Oct. 26, battled it out with rookie Jake Virtanen.

Farnham was pretty stoked that he just punched a guy, which was noticed by Canucks left wing Brandon Prust​, who is currently sidelined due to an injury. Prust let the social media world know his thoughts.

Mic drop.
