The poll is hardly scientific but no one seems to recall ever seeing anything quite like what happened in Wednesday night's Ducks-Predators game in Anaheim.

Veteran linesman Dan Schachte reached over and grabbed Duck defenceman Francois Beauchemin's stick and "helped" him to touch the puck to force an icing call.

Schachte didn't have to do it. He's within his right to simply blow the play dead if he thinks a player is stalling on an icing call or delayed penalty.

But the truth is, Schachte thought there might have been trouble brewing elsewhere on the ice, a potential scrum, and wanted to get to where he thought he might be needed. He decided to get a little creative, dare we say a little entertaining, to get the play stopped.
