Moment of anger could end WHL career for Victoria Royals’ Kody McDonald
Here’s video of tonight’s stick swinging incident at bench. Mcdonald gets Franklin and trainer Toledo Robinson. Broke his glasses. How this didn’t result in serious injury is a miracle. Match penalty. pic.twitter.com/Gcwwo5agtZ

- Lashing out in anger during an undisciplined moment could have the effect of prematurely ending Victoria Royals assistant captain Kody McDonald’s junior-hockey career.
- McDonald has been suspended indefinitely.
- The league is looking over McDonald’s actions in the third period of Wednesday night’s 6-3 Blazers victory in Kamloops.
- Looks like he makes contact with the officials on the last lunge around the glass too.
- McDonald wasn’t even on the ice at the time. He leaned over from the end of the Victoria bench to swing his stick at Kamloops forward Zane Franklin, who was on the end of the Blazers’ bench.
- McDonald was immediately ejected from the game.
- McDonald, who is 20 and in his final year of junior, was assessed an intent-to-injure match penalty and game misconduct.
