Oilers defenceman Evan Bouchard caught cursing referees on live mic

In pretty much every NHL game you watch on television, you'll faintly hear the players shout a few swear words and yells from the ice, and rarely you can hear exactly what they're saying. Plenty of these curses are always towards the referees, just like Evan Bouchard of the Oilers last night. In a hilarious moment while the play stopped for a bit, Bouchard cursed out a referee standing next to him.


Fans could hear Bouchard on the broadcast clearly say to the referee, «Are you not watching the game? F**k me!» Play by Play announcer Jack Michaels even incorporated the moment into his call, also hearing Bouchard loud and hilarious complaints.

The referees in last night's game were reluctant to call much at all, just totalling four minor penalties between both teams - and there could have been much more. It was a playoff style game in that aspect and many more, but that still always leads to the classic complaints like we heard from Bouchard.
