Panthers vs. Blue Jackets: Ed Jovanovski ejected for elbowing Corey Tropp

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Good thing he's not retiring after this game.

Since Ed Jovanovski has spent 17 years in the NHL, it was reasonable to assume he would retire after this season. But the Florida Panthers defenseman squashed those rumors last week, saying he intends to play one more season.

It's a good thing he is. Otherwise his NHL career would've ended in unceremonious fashion.

Jovanovski was given a five-minute major for elbowing and a game misconduct on Saturday. Let's just say he violently disagreed with Blue Jackets forward Corey Tropp's hit on him in the first period.

Not very veteran-like, Jovo. Thankfully that's just the end of his season and not his 17-year career.
