The impossible happened tonight in Moncton.
At 1:25 of the second period, Zach O’Brien took the first penalty of his 182-game regular season Quebec Major Junior Hockey League career. It was an interference penalty. As far as we know, the game was not stopped to honour the historic moment.
It’s incredible that it took this long. O’Brien plays big minutes and has recorded 248 points in his QMJHL career. It’s amazing that he wasn’t even accidently taken off following a scrum or something like that. Gotta respect the guy.
The Titan lost the game, 5-1.
With O’Brien taking a penalty, we’ve entered the Bizarro World. No idea what’s going to happen next.
