WATCH: Sharks' mic'd-up Dillon gets in a fight, then says sorry in a polite makeup
Dillon might have thrown hands with Nashville's Austin Watson, but he sure kept things civil afterward
Brenden Dillon isnât only a key cog on the San Jose Sharksâ playoff-bound defense.
He also happens to be the most polite fighter in the NHL.
In a viral micâd-up video from SJSharks Productions, Dillon can be seen scuffling with the Nashville Predatorsâ Austin Watson in a fight that went down in Saturdayâs Sharks-Predators clash:
Only after disengaging from Watson, Dillon doesnât keep talking trash or throwing jabs. He politely apologizes to Watson, comments on the need for the two to âwork on our cardio this summerâ and, in the friendliest of Canadian tones, wishes the Predators foe a happy and prosperous rest of the season.
âGood luck the rest of the year, bud,â Watson chimes in.
âThanks, you too, buddy,â Dillon responds.
If this isnât the most pleasant on-ice clash of recent history, then what is?
It speaks volumes about Dillonâs new unofficial title of Mr. Nice Guy. And for the serious crowd, it probably speaks just as much about the current state of fighting -- or lack thereof -- in hockey.
