Joffrey Lupul’s eyes must have lit up like a Christmas tree when he saw a chance to deliver a hard check on Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin. Lupul had him all lined up perfectly.

That was until Sedin ducked the check with a subtle move. Lupul was already committed though. Instead of getting Sedin, he absolutely clocked Maple Leafs teammate Nazem Kadri with an elbow.

Kadri went down like a ton of bricks.

If it weren’t on his own teammate, Lupul might be hearing from the NHL's Department of Player Safety after that high heat. Instead, he merely draws our laughter.
