Ducks’ Zegras wants to apologize to Benning for ‘cheap shot’ originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Anaheim Ducks forward Trevor Zegras wants to apologize to Matt Benning.

On Tuesday night, Zegras took a whack at Benning’s groin. Zegras got two minutes for slashing, but the Sharks defensemen was hot after the game.

“He’s miked up out there. Yapping a little bit,” Benning shared. “If he wants to play tough, I can play tough, too. He went for a cheap shot. It is what it is.”

The NHL saw it from Benning’s perspective, fining Zegras $1,500 the next day.

For his part, Zegras addressed the incident Saturday morning and seemed genuinely contrite.

“I feel pretty bad about that. Obviously, I didn’t mean to catch him between the legs. When I watched the replay, it sucks, man. Hopefully, I get a chance to say something today,” the 21-year-old star acknowledged. “Definitely worth a fine. One of those things, you’re battling, you’re kind of going at each other all game, and just [got] my stick in a bad spot.”
