The Stanley Cup Playoffs are under way, which means the NHL regular season is over, which means we will now take a moment to reflect back on said regular season and examine some of the weird, odd and strange things that occurred over the past six months.

The list has been narrowed to seven items, but there were plenty of head-scratching moments that received consideration, like P.K. Subban dressing as Jaromir Jagr at the All-Star Game, the lady who tossed her bra on the ice at a Flyers game and the Coyotes dressing a bank manager as a goaltender. If those weren’t good enough to make the list, what are sort of wild and crazy things did make the list?

Great question. Here are the top WTF moments from the 2015-16 NHL season:

7. Jaromir Jagr has sex with an 18-year-old model

It’s 2016. It’s a great time to be alive. It’s a world slowly moving toward a place where any two consenting adults can engage in sexual intercourse and it’s totally cool and not at all scandalous. It’s not perfect, but it’s improving. So why is Jaromir Jagr, a world-famous hockey star, having sex with an 18-year-old model, a WTF moment?

It’s not. The WTF part of this is everything that happened afterward.

Jagr, as far as any of us knows, is single. The sex was consensual and legal. Yet, for some reason that no one will ever be able to truly understand, the woman attempted to blackmail Jagr. She wanted $2,000 or she would leak the photo online. Because if word got out that Jagr had sex with a woman… see, how does that sentence end in a way that makes sense for her? It’s baffling.

When he became aware of this scheme, Jagr said, and this is an interpretation based on what we know, “hahahahaha lol OK go ahead.”

This actually reminds me — Heidi Klum, if you are reading this, feel free to blackmail me with photos of us in bed together then leak them online. I will find a way to live with the shame. E-mail is in my Twitter bio. Thanks.

 

6. Some idiot stole a puck from a child

I’ve attended about 60 games per year since 2009 as a media member, so I’ve seen my fair share of pucks fly into the crowd. Without question, when I’m looking closely, when an adult grabs a puck, he or she always looks to give it to a kid. Sometimes, they are with their kid or a nearby kid puts on the puppy dog eyes and the adult has no choice.

Anyway, check out this jackass in Pittsburgh.

Dan Bylsma, back in town with the Buffalo Sabres, tosses a puck with intention of it landing in a child’s hands. Instead, some doofus lumbers from his seat to intercept the puck.

This is one of those situations where boos or pressure from the nearby fans should inevitably lead to the man realizing his mistake and returning the puck to its intended owner. But no! He kept the puck!

Fear not, as the Penguins saw this and made sure the child that had his puck stolen got two pucks out of the deal.

Side note: That’s a sweet hat.

 

5. Craig Smith makes a save on himself

No matter how many times I watch this, I can’t get over everything that needed to happen for this play to occur AND the fact that it occurred to the same guy who once missed an empty net from two feet away.

Smith is a bit blessed; in both cases, the Predators won the games.

 

4. Everything involving Dennis Wideman and the linesman he cross checked

During a game against the Predators, Dennis Wideman was rocked by a hit deep in his own zone. Clearly dazed, Wideman got to his feet and skated toward his bench. But before he could arrive, for reasons only he can truly know, he cross-checked linesman Don Henderson, who has not been on the ice since the hit.

Wideman remained in the game and was never examined for a concussion, despite a hit that clearly rocked his head but later blamed the hit on the concussion, claiming it was a mitigating factor in the ugly incident.

The NHL had none of it and suspended Wideman 20 games.

Here’s where it gets truly WTF.

Wideman appealed and wanted a reduced sentence because of his concussion and he won. The suspension was reduced by an arbitrator to 10 games, but only after he had sat for 19 games. The process was dragged out to such an extent that all Wideman got out of “winning” the appeal was one game and nine games’ worth of salary restored.
