Buffalo Sabres forward Steve Ott has been in the news quite a bit lately. A few days ago he made headlines because he was complaining about fans booing/mocking the Sabres for playing terribly. On Thursday night, Ott took things to a new level of weird, trying to lick Montreal Canadiens forward Jeff Halpern’s half-shield. What possessed Ott to do this, I have no idea, but apparently Ott doesn’t want to talk about it.
#Sabres I asked Steve Ott about licking Jeff Halpern's helmet. "I don’t know what you’re talking about." Then he smiled and kind of cackled.

Whatever he was trying to do didn’t work though, as the Canadiens destroyed the Sabres 5-1.
