Now with the Buffalo Sabres, Ott has maintained his well-earned reputation as one of the NHL's most annoying players. FYI - He really is a great guy and was a fan/media favorite in his many years with the Stars.
What he did on Thursday night in a game against the Montreal Canadiens has to be an NHL first - he liked an opponent. Here is the best part - it was a former teammate, Jeff Halpern.
If memory serves, both of these men are single. Just sayin' ...
The Sabres were getting smoked when Ott had a faceoff against Halpern. Watch this video carefully and you can see Ott extend his tongue out to barely touch Halpern's face shield. It should be noted that a progressive an NHL did not call a penalty on Ott for Licking.
