Anthony Stolarz slashes opponent in head with goalie stick

New, comments

It's a safe bet that Flyers prospect goalie Anthony Stolarz will be suspended for this one.

The OHL announced Wednesday that Anthony Stolarz has been suspended eight games for the below incident.

London Knights goalie Anthony Stolarz, a 2012 draft pick of the Flyers, probably regrets this. He took a swinging chop at the back of the head of Josh Ho-Sang, a 2014 draft eligible member of the Windsor Spitfires during an OHL playoff game on Tuesday. It was not good.

Stolarz was only given a two-minute minor penalty for high sticking on the play. That is probably the most extreme minor high sticking penalty I've ever seen. It occurred at the 15:56 mark of the first period, and Ho-Sang actually was given a two-minute minor for slashing Stolarz's pads too. (Another London player went for roughing, so it wasn't even.)

London had a 3-0 lead when this happened, and they went on to win the game 10-2 (!). Stolarz played the entire game, and Ho-Sang actually scored one of the two Windsor goals. This was a playoff game, and the Knights now lead the series 3-0. Who knows if Stolarz will be in net for Game 4.
