Pavel Datsyuk is a new player upon entering the KHL. Former Detroit Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk was never known for racking up penalty minutes during his NHL career, but check out the hit above.
Datsyuk took exception to being hit from behind by an opponent and set his sights on a different opponent that just took a shot. Datsyuk leveled him, earning him 25 minutes in penalties and a game misconduct.
The crazy thing is, Datsyuk never received more than 25 minutes in penalties (with the exception of the 2003-04 Season) in any season he played in the NHL with Detroit. Talk about breaking your own personal record in a hurry!
