The AHL playoffs have been underway for a few days now. Unfortunately for the Laval Rocket, they were short-lived, as the Canadiens’ training club was eliminated last night.
That said, today it’s not the Rocket game I want to talk about. In fact, I’m taking you to Charlotte, where the Checkers (the Panthers’ feeder club) hosted the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (the Flyers’ feeder club) last night.
Now here’s something you don’t see happen often in a field hockey game!
Charlotte sends a puck in behind LV’s net and the puck explodes into a dozen pieces. @InsideAHLHockey

I love the referee’s reaction right next to the camera, him being totally confused by what just happened next to him.
What’s fascinating is that we’re not talking about a necessarily powerful clearance, when the player simply pushed the disc forward to send it deep into territory.
Having said that, we know that a device of this kind is quite fragile, so it didn’t take much for it to break like that.
The good news is that, apart from the financial implications, there was no damage to the footage. It’s already a camera incident not as bad as the one that injured Jeff Petry in the summer of 2021, when he got his little finger stuck in the camera hole.
What bad luck: Jeff Petry seems to injure himself by getting his little finger stuck in the hole reserved for cameras… 😰 pic.twitter.com/hqndUGeOfW
