The Toronto Maple Leafs opened up the 2017-18 NHL season with a commanding 7-2 road victory over the Winnipeg Jets.
Early on in the game, Maple Leafs forward Leo Komarov received a very odd penalty as he was sent to the penalty box for two minutes for wearing his visor too high.
After the game, Komarov met with the media and one of the topics he discussed was his first-ever equipment violation penalty. Since his team was fresh off a massive 7-2 victory, you can bet Uncle Leo was in a pretty good mood.
Komarov recorded 36 penalty minutes in his first two NHL seasons, but he’s totaled 71 penalty minutes over the last season and will probably finish the 2017-18 season with 30-40 penalty minutes.
