Olivier Punches Xhekaj While On The Ground

Columbus’ Mathieu Olivier got a cheap shot in Montreal’s Arber Xhekaj after a fight on Thursday night.

After Xhekaj, who has made himself a known pest in the NHL this season, sent Columbus forward Liam Foudy into Montreal’s bench after a big hit, Mathieu Olivier decided to challenge Xhekaj in a fight.

Both players exchanged heavy blows but, ultimately, Xhekaj got the better of the two players, although Olivier fell on top of him.

But it wasn’t until afterwards when things got interesting.

While Xhekaj is on the ground, Olivier appears to throw a punch targeted for Xhekaj’s face.

Olivier appears to apologize to Xhekaj before the two players are separated and sent to the penalty box. Neither player will face supplementary discipline.
