When it comes to sportsmanship around the NHL, San Jose Sharks defenceman Erik Karlsson is possibly the most level headed player in the entire League.

Tuesday night in Colorado Avalanche's Ball Arena was an exception, when Karlsson lost his sh*t on NHL officials Gord Dwyer and Corey Syvret after being high sticked by Avalanche forward Alex Newhook.

Karlsson was cut on the infraction and Newhook should have received a double minor, but none of the officials apparently seen it. Karlsson would let the refs hear about it, before going to get the cut looked at by the Sharks medical trainer.

Here's the footage. Judge for yourself:



I know refs are human and make mistakes but with two referees and two linesmen out there, they need to make sure they don't miss these type of calls because it could change the outcome of a game.
SHOULD THE NHL LOOK INTO REPLAYS FOR MISSED CALLS?
