Daniel Carcillo has made his NHL career beeing a tough guy, an antagonist, and a player who easily gets under the skin of his opponents. In fact, over the last three seasons, Carcillo has been amongst the league leaders in penalty minutes – 4th in the NHL this past regular season with 207 PIM; 1st in 2008-09 season with 254 PIM between Phoenix and Philly; and 1st in the 2007-08 season with 324 PIM with the ‘Yotes.
So having played in his fourth NHL season, the 25-year-old has been through virtually any and all physical altercations that the league’s best have thrown at him.
Except for an opponent biting him.
“Last time I have been bit was in grade school.” Carcillo said to the media post game tonight. “It is not a good feeling it is pretty cowardly.”
