Head Coach Physically Attacks Longtime NHLer at the Spengler Cup

The Spengler Cup, known for featuring entertaining hockey with former NHL stars in the later stages of their careers, took a disturbing turn as Tomas Jurco, a seasoned NHL player with over 200 games under his belt, faced a physical altercation with his head coach.

This is unacceptable behaviour from Josh Holden, who twice grabs and yanks Tomas Jurco during the Spengler Cup.

Jurco, who has played for notable teams like the Red Wings, Blackhawks, Oilers, and Golden Knights, is currently competing in the KHL and representing Slovakia in the Spengler Cup. The incident unfolded when Jurco's head coach, Josh Holden, aggressively grabbed him in a heated confrontation.

Get that sh*t out of here.

Observers quickly criticized Holden's actions as unacceptable and ridiculous. Videos of the incident circulated on social media, sparking outrage among fans and the hockey community.
