The Stanley Cup champions played a pre-season game yesterday against the LA Kings. Things got ugly when Mark Stone received a significant dirty hit.

Fueling the Rivalry: Kings Try to Injure Stone



About halfway through the game, Hayden Hodgson, a forward for the Kings, fiercely hit Mark Stone, and a huge melee erupted afterward, where most of the Golden Knights jumped on Hodgson.

"Hayden Hodgson absolutely runs over Mark Stone and the #GoldenKnights take exception "





After the game, Stone got the last word, commenting:

"That's probably the last time I'll ever play against that guy. Not really much of a player, so I'll leave it at that." - Mark Stone

A Clean Hit? Social Media Users Give Their Opinion



The hit created a division among fans. The majority of non-Knights fans called it a clean hit.

Beautifully executed clean hit


That's a clean hit.


I don't like how this game is devolving. Clean hit, separated the man from the puck, and everyone loses their cool. How about you keep your head up and play on!


But, of course, fans of the Knights didn't appreciate it.

Wasn't it a late hit? Puck was long gone.


Do you think Hodgson should be suspended?
