I don’t know if a hat killed former Ottawa goaltender Ray Emery’s father or if they just make his head scratchy, but if you ask him to wear one he will straight up murder you.
Emery is currently playing in Russia’s KHL where was he recently had a rough night. After surrendering five goals and getting pulled from the game, a team trainer tried to get Ray to put on a sponor’s cap as he stewed angrily on the bench. Well, Ray was obviously having none of that and it was “oops upside your head” for some poor Ruskie. He didn’t want to wear the hat, ok?
If you don’t know who Emery is, here’s a link to a video of him in better days—taking on the entire Buffalo Sabres with just his fists. You can take the crazy fighting goalie out of Canada ....
