WOW | Zegras disrespects the game again and Crosby shares his point of view

The Ducks selected Trevor Zegras with 9th overall pick in 2019. Up to this day, he's been a steal. The way he's been putting points and giving the fans a show is mesmerizing. Though he's building up a reputation of being a prick and this is another example.

There was work at the end of January that Zegras said unimaginable things to the Coyotes defenseman Troy Stetcher and last night he added on it again. The Ducks were hosting the Pens and the legendary Sidney Crosby and Zegras absolutely failed to respect the game's code of conduct yet again.

The Penguins held a 4-1 lead at that point, during the 2nd period Zegras took shot moments after the whistle was blown for offside. The whistle normally means the end of the sequence, but apparently not to Zegras' ears. The sequence clearly displeased Pens' captain, Sidney Crosby who immediately came over to let him know this was a mistake.




Clearly, the message wasn't clear enough since Zegras was back at it when he once again made a play after a whistle and to show his frustration, threw the puck at the other end of the ice.


The Ducks were handed a lesson in front of their fans, the Pens left Anaheim with a 6-3 win.

Zegras is undeniably one of the most skilled players in the game, but his reputation is growing on him. In 53 games he shows a stellar 44 points, but if he keeps running his mouth and disrespecting the game itself, you can bet a seasoned veteran may not be as keen on him as Crosby was.
