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.”
