Penguins Asham apologizes for knockout punch
Asham decked Beagle with a pair of right hands, sending the 25-year-old face-first onto the ice. Asham then spread his arms out, palms down, like a referee signaling a fighter is “out” as he skated to the penalty box and followed it up by placing his hands on the side of his head to imitate someone sleeping.
“It’s unfortunate the way the fight ended,” Asham said. “I wanted to win but I didn’t want to go out and hurt anyone. It was uncalled for.”
Washington captain Alex Ovechkin said Asham was “not respectful” for going toe-to-toe with an inexperienced fighter.
“It’s a hockey game, but that was pretty tough,” Ovechkin said. “Beagle … he’s not a fighter, he’s just, it’s not his job to fight. I don’t know, it’s kind of unrespectful for players on a different team.”
