NHL Broadcaster Publicly Calls Out Star Player For Being The Biggest Diver

Published February 21, 2024 at 7:51 PM

An NHL broadcaster has put a spotlight on a player's penchant for embellishment, labeling him the league's top offender when it comes to diving.

During a recent game where the Colorado Avalanche faced off against the Vancouver Canucks, Avalanche forward Ross Colton was involved in a play that resulted in a penalty, a decision that sparked controversy.

Vancouver Canucks head coach Rick Tocchet expressed his displeasure over the call, suggesting it might not have been warranted.

In the aftermath, NHL Network radio broadcaster didn't hold back, taking to social media to single out Colton, branding him "the biggest diver in the NHL."

«Ross Colton is the biggest diver in the NHL!!! Jacks would have not called that !!!!!»

While diving is a tactic some players resort to across the league, with names like Tim Stutzle of the Ottawa Senators and Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins coming up, the broadcaster's critique suggests Colton's actions stand out.

The hope among fans and pundits alike is that referees will become more vigilant regarding Colton's play, potentially leading to penalties for embellishment in future games.
