ASU is a high end program at the moment... as it is currently ranked for the first time ever. An no, you didn't remember correctly..this is ASU's 4th year in NCAA DIV 1 hockey.

Perhaps you should put a little more research into your posts...seems like Francis(which I hate) did.

Pospisil got into with a fan last night. Some conflicting reports as to whether the fan had thrown some garbage at Pospisil before he threw the water bottle at the fan.

Not sure if there will be supplementary discipline coming down.

Takes a special type of jackass to throw something at a teenager

It's a university game, so probably a young crowd itself

Sure seems like there is just too much drama always around him and he perhaps needs to do some maturing

I know little about this guy but just looking at his stats

He was averaging over 5 PIMs a game last year.

This year ts sitting at less than 3.

which suggests some maturity on his part if not picking his spots better.

I like it when a guy can lead his club in points AND PIMs.

The first bit of drama has to do with him calling out Hockey Slovakia for its corruption. The head coach, as I recall, has fairly deep ties within the organization and didnít even want to have Pospisil on the team, when he is arguably one of the best Slovakian prospects at the moment. Pospisil called him out on misusing him during the WJís and not even arranging a ride to pick him up from the airport. Thereís more to it, but thatís all I can remember right now. Would you rather he knuckle under and not disturb the status-quo so he doesnít stir up ďdramaĒ?

Really doesnít matter what provoked him, players need to learn to ignore fans.

I've never been to a junior/university hockey game in the southern US, but have attended plenty of UofM vs State bball and football games. The player taunting is unlike anything i've ever seen... like mobs of adults chanting stuff like "________'s sister gave me the <clap-clap-clap>". If hockey fans are at all similar, it's a tough spot for a player to keep cool.

Yeah for his own sake he needs to have more composure than that
My observation is still that there is too much drama surrounding this guy

Unless the context revealed that the fan in question was on his way to commit a violent crime or act of terrorism and Pospisil felt compelled to stop him, I think it's fair to conclude that his response was not measured or appropriate.

Why is there no glass there? A junior rink allowing fans to sit right over top of the opposing teams bench just seems like a fight waiting to happen.
