As one of the best agitators in the NHL, Philadelphia Flyers winger Scott Hartnell is used to all kinds of heckling - but on the ice and from the stands. Every now and then, a particularly creative - or notably tasteless - bit of tomfoolery must get his attention. That was a case when a fan referenced his divorce in a rather insensitive way, which Hartnell referenced in a Tweet and photo.

“Great win Great effort #shesallyours #motivation #Flyers

As Travis Hughes said, Hartnell absolutely got the last laugh. (Although it would have been perfect if he pulled Jerry Seinfeld’s tactic by heckling the fan where he works.)
