[MUST SEE] The Los Angeles Kings goaltender has been expelled!
Los Angeles Kings goaltender Pheonix Copley had to watch part of Friday's game against the Anaheim Ducks from his locker room after being ejected.  ;
In the second period, the masked man was penalized for hitting an opponent with his blocker.
A scrum broke out in front of Copley's net and this latter decided to get in on the action by bullying a rival with his piece of equipment. At the other end of the rink, Ducks goaltender John Gibson wanted to defend his teammate and left his half circle. The referees, however, prevented the two masked men from coming to blows.

Jonathan Quick was therefore forced into the matchup. He completed his night of work by repelling eight of the ten shots sent his way and the Kings won 6-3.
Returning to Copley, the native of North Pole, Alaska, knows a fantastic season. After signing a one-year contract with the Kings last summer, he was able to snatch the number 1 position from Quick. In 23 games, he posted a 17-3-1 record, a .904 save percentage and a 2.70 goals-against average.
