After San Jose Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl scored four goals against the New York Rangers, he drew some criticism for the move he pulled on the fourth goal. Sharks captain Joe Thornton came to his defense and his comments were utterly hysterical.
Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said: “Shut up, have you ever played the game?”
When the press turned his way, he then added:
“I’d have my c*ck out if I scored four goals. I’d have my c*ck out, stroking it.”
I honestly can’t believe he said that on the record. Has to be one of the funniest things any player has ever uttered during an interview. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there that will be rooting for him to score four goals in a game this year just to see if he would actually do it.
Yeah, he said it.
