Kings’ Lucic to have hearing for sucker punching Coyotes’ Connauton

Watch as Milan Lucic loses his cool in a scrum, slashing and sucker punching Kevin Connauton, then screams at goaltender Louis Domingue.

Los Angeles Kings forward Milan Lucic will have a hearing for the sucker punch he delivered to Arizona Coyotes defenceman Kevin Connauton on Saturday night.

Occurring during a stoppage of play at the 13:05 mark in the third period of Saturday’s game, Lucic skated up to Connauton and landed a right hook flush, knocking him down.

Lucic attacked Connauton in retaliation of a slash to his left hand he received from the Coyotes defenceman.

The Kings winger got a game misconduct for the incident and could receive more punishment depending on the results of his hearing.
