Patrick Laine recently had some choice words for Rasmus Andersson, the player who laid a dirty hit on him and left him injured.

Laine Injured For Weeks After Dirty Hit from Andersson



Patrick Laine was just taken off of the injured reserve list after suffering a head injury as a result of the dirty hit laid on him by Rasmus Andersson. Andersson was suspended for 4 games for leaving his feet and delivering a headshot on Laine in the dying seconds of the third period.

Laine Makes Veiled Threat Towards Andersson in Recent Interview



The hit was completely unnecessary and was deserving of the resulting 4 game suspension. While the hit caused a brawl on the ice, Laine is looking forward to their next meeting to potentially settle the score.

Patrik Laine said the hit that took him out of the lineup -- and led to a suspension for Calgary's Rasmus Andersson -- was "unnecessary."

Laine: "The only thing I have to say, I'm pretty excited to play him in January. I'll just leave it at that." #CBJ


While not a direct threat, it does appear that Laine has the next meeting with Andersson circled on his calendar, which isn't a good sign for peacekeepers. Laine is not a big fighter, per se, being in only one in his career, but their next meeting might bring out his angry side.
