Brady Tkachuk gets ragdolled when forced to fight after dirty hit

Published January 20, 2024 at 3:53 PM
Early on in today's matchup between the Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets, Sens captain Brady Tkachuk was in his element being a pest when he made a dirty hit against a Jets defender, and was forced to answer the bell with a mismatched fight.

In the corner, Tkachuk delivered a hard crunching hit to a Jets defenceman in a vulnerable position in the corner, who immediately fell down clutching his head. Jets defenceman Brendan Dillion went over to challenge Tkachuk for a fight, who reluctantly obliged to the fight despite the mismatch in size.

Tkachuk is certainly a decent enough fighter, but Dillion is in a weight class of his own. After an initial jostling for position, Dillion popped off Tkachuk's helmet with one punch, then pulled the jersey over Tkachuk's head and began ragdolling him around before the referees stepped in.

The Senators went on to lose the game 2-1 in overtime and continue their fall down the standings back into the basement for yet another season. Tkachuk is clearly the only one still dragging the Senators into the fight in games, and at this point, it wouldn't be surprising if Brady has had enough of the losing in Ottawa.
