Hockey Player Brett Cook Banned For Life After Punching Ref In The Face [VIDEO, GIF]

Brett Cook, a defenseman for Nipissing University in Canada, did the unthinkable in a late February game. During a fight he let his emotions get the best of him and punched a linesman in the face.

This wasn’t an accidental graze. This was a full force uppercut that visibly stunned the official.

According to the YouTube uploader:

The incident occurred following a third-period scrap between Cook and a UQTR player. Piche (the linesman) grabbed Cook and attempted to direct him towards the penalty box when another scrum broke out.

Cook, who played the previous 5 seasons in the OHL, had four years left of eligibility to play at the university level. He can kiss that goodbye.

Ontario University Athletics dropped a lifetime ban on Cook’s ass and released the following statement:

Upon review by the OUA men’s hockey review panel, consisting of the OUA men’s hockey convener and a representative of the OUA Sport Committee, Brett Cook has been banned from participating in any OUA-sanctioned competition for the remainder of his university career.

  1. snore spray says:

    One with the motives why men and women snore is due to
    an improper sleeping position. Push your chin against
    your throat and breath. You most most likely
    just snored! This takes place usually when individuals lay down on a big fat
    pillow (particularly if they sleep on their back). The throat is partially closed, resulting inside a snore.

    To resolve this, an anti snoring pillow will open your airways
    and sustain the correct sleeping position the snorer wants tto avoid snoring aall through the night.
