Watch Roman Polak fire a slapshot straight off an official's knee

BY Pete Blackburn • December 14, 2016

Either Roman Polak really needs to work on his slapshot accuracy or he's got a serious vendetta against NHL officials.

Polak inflicted some serious agony Wednesday night when the veteran Maple Leafs defenseman fired a slapper straight to the knee of innocent linesman Steve Miller, who was standing just a few feet away. Miller was clearly in serious pain after taking the puck, and was tended to by medical personnel from both teams. He ultimately left the game and didn't return.

As of right now, there's no update on Miller's status. Hopefully there's no significant damage.
