Daily Duel 3/19: Steve Ott vs. Jamie Lundmark
Ever since he was moved to the top line for the Dallas Stars, Steve Ott has cut down on his fighting and agitation, for which he has made a name for himself thus far in his career. But Jamie Lundmark of Calgary looked to take exception to Ott’s aggressiveness along the boards, as you can see in the replay (courtesy of HockeyFights.com), which forced Ott into action. As soon as Lundmark threw that punch to his back, Ott was in his face until he made him drop the gloves. It resembles more of a bear hug contest for some of it, but Ott soon gains the upper-hand and sends Lundmark to the ice. All due respect to Ott, who has scored a career-high 16 goals this season, but he should stick to doing what he does best, forechecking with relentless aggression and riling up the competition. He is a true grinder.
