PHOTO: Cal Clutterbuck's eye black is a little much
Cal Clutterbuck went a little far with the eye black for the Islanders' Yankee Stadium practice on Tuesday.
Part of the territory with outdoor hockey games is seeing what those wacky hockey players are going to do with the eye black that's usually reserved just for the football and baseball players in this part of the world.
That ... that's not such a good look. The blackface bit never goes over well as Tyler Bozak and Raffi Torres can attest.
After the practice, Clutterbuck said it just got out of hand, no harm intended.

I seriously doubt that Clutterbuck did it intentionally or anything like that but let's just say he shouldn't go with this look under the lights on Wednesday.
