Jake Virtanen gets roasted on Twitter, while one fan petitions to deport him

Jake Virtanen, it’s safe to say, had a terrible 2016 World Junior Championship. His first point of the tournament came during Canada’s quarterfinal match against Finland, but his game will be more known for the undisciplined double minor he took as he slashed a player while already on the hook for a delayed penalty. This, along with a delay of game penalty, led to the game winning goal for Finland which knocked Canada out 6-5. It was the third time in four years that Canada failed to medal at the WJC, and the first time since 1998 (also in Helsinki) that Canada failed to get past the quarters.

Virtanen, who has Finnish roots, was the most hated man on Twitter for a day:

It didn’t help that Virtanen decided to blame the referees:

And in the overreaction of the day:

That’s right. Somebody started a change.org petition to get Virtanen, head coach Dave Lowry, and goalie Mackenzie Blackwood banned from Canada. Deported! Over a hockey game. That’s anger, friends. (Thankfully for Virtanen and friends, the petition only has five signatures, so I think they can spend some time at home … safely.)
