ECHL goalie John Curry fined for spraying water on taunting fans (Video)
Orlando Solar Bears goalie John Curry was fined earlier this week for spraying water on a group of heckling fans. The thing about taunting during an ECHL game that makes it different from an NHL game is the players hear every last word. When five of the 30 fans in attendance make it their goal to harass you for 60 minutes, it takes its toll more than it would if the heckling was coming from a sea of 15,000 fans.
As you can see from the video above, Curry waited until the game — a 4-1 victory for the Gwinnett Gladiators over Orlando — was over and he was heading to the locker room before dousing the loudmouths.
Curry was fined an undisclosed amount for losing his temper, but who can blame him? Like the time Indians closer Chris Perez went off on an A’s fan, the only mistake the Solar Bears goalie made was forgetting that cameras are always watching in the year 2012.
