I have a proposal for a new type of assist in hockey.
I propose that if you are a winger and you tie up the defenceman (or defencewoman) while screeing the goalie so good that your linemate can just walk right in with puck and pop in the puck in the net, then you should totally get an assist. Especially when the defencewoman is 17 ft tall and you are just a wee 5 footer. I’m just saying.
In totally unrelated news, you should have seen this beautiful goal my linemate got when I was tying up the defencewoman last night.
