10-minute misconduct… For throwing a chicken kibble into the stands

It’s definitely one of the most unusual short stories I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way at the end of your reading.

The ECHL has decided to do things differently by presenting a matinee game today.

The aim was to enable children to attend the match as part of a school outing.

That said, just before a face-off in the game between the Toledo Walleye and the Kalamazoo Wings, a child threw a chicken kibble onto the ice.

That’s when Kirill Tyutyayev, a Wings player, decided to throw the kibble back into the stands so as not to complicate the players’ work on the ice.

The result? Tyutyayev received a 10-minute misconduct.

There could even be further consequences, since the league doesn’t like to see players throwing things in the stands.

For those wondering… No, this isn’t a prank. And no, it’s not April 1st.

The footage in question can be found right here :

When I woke up this morning, I didn’t think I’d be talking to you about a chicken kibble today. I really didn’t.

But on a more serious note, I think the league’s reaction is a bit harsh.

I understand the danger of throwing objects into a crowd… But play was about to resume and Tyutyayev simply wanted to clear the rink.

You can see from the video that he had no intention of hurting anyone, and it’s not as if he was super aggressive in his approach. He wasn’t out to eat her, after all… Although that would have made for a special moment.

In the end, it’s a pretty funny anecdote. At least his team (the Wings) won the game 6-2… And Kirill Tyutyayev will have a good story to tell at his Christmas dinner!
