The NHL season is just about over, but New York Islanders rookie Justin Johnson may have snuck in the knockout of the year on Sunday. The 33-year-old Johnson, who was appearing in just his second NHL game, landed a punch square to the face of Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott.
As you can see, Scott towers over Johnson. He is 6-foot-8 whereas Johnson is just 6-foot-1, but it didn’t seem to matter. The fight looked even at first and Scott landed a couple of shots before Johnson landed and incredible knockout punch that would make any boxing trainer proud.
Talk about making your presence felt.
