Streaker dressed as referee sparks benches-clearing brawl

From Comcast SportsNet
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Two players were ejected after a massive brawl between UCLA and Arizona that spread more than halfway down the field. Arizona defensive back Shaquille Richardson and UCLA receiver Taylor Embree were ejected after a brawl started with 4 seconds left in the first half Thursday night. The fight started when a streaker ran onto the field and three players from each team started jawing at each other. Shoves followed and players from both teams raced onto the field, pushing each other and throwing wild punches in a melee that spread nearly 60 yards across the field. Several players had to be restrained by coaches before officials got everyone back to their respective sidelines. Arizona led 42-7 at the time and went on to win 48-12.

Morning Skate: Golden Knights happy to get Malcolm Subban back

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while watching old Super Friends episodes with my 4-year-old on a Saturday morning.

*Has anybody ever been as excited to get a healthy Malcolm Subban back in the lineup as the Vegas Golden Knights are this weekend? Pro Hockey Talk is asking the question, and I think I can honestly answer with a resounding “No.” We’ll see if he’s actually worth all the excitement, but obviously, he’s better than what the injury-plagued Golden Knights had in the interim.

*The Buffalo Sabres continue to get very little return for any of the investments they’ve made in the team over the last couple of years.

*Ryan Suter knows what it takes to remain among the NHL defenseman workhorses in the NHL, and he is consistently there year in and year out.

*Dustin Brown has been a resurgent performer for the Los Angeles Kings this season and is one of the big storylines behind their turnaround.

*The Detroit Red Wings are beginning to more openly adopt Jeff Blashill’s speed game, but the question is how much that will pay dividends for them.

*For something completely different: Good piece in the Boston Globe about Danny Ainge’s relationship with recently passed Red Sox great Bobby Doerr.
