Well this was certainly good for a laugh.
Late in the first period of Buffalo's game in Edmonton on Thursday, Sabres forward Cory Conacher earned a two-minute minor for roughing following an exchange with Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens. The exchange of pleasantries resulted in Conacher losing his helmet. The officials attempted to retrieve it for him but made one little mistake ... they gave him John Scott's helmet instead.
It's important to know that according to the Sabres, Scott is listed at 6'8, 258 pounds. Conacher checks in at 5'8, 158 pounds.
This was the result.
From this day forward Cory Conacher shall be referred to as Dark Helmet.
