Our weekly selection of hockey moves that leave us scratching our heads. Started back in 2007, HotW was an institution around these parts or years. As research time became more scarce, we let it lapse, but by the grace of a Gordie Hull Hat Trick, it's back!

We don't recommend that any of these feats be attempted at home, nor do we suggest that you you these fine folks as role models for your children.

For the Week of 11/23/09
Anaheim Duck Fans

Following the Anahaim Ducks overtime voctory over the Tampa Bay LIghtning at the Honda Center last week, Ducks defenseman Scott Neidermayer was awarded the first star of the game. As become part tradition, part NHL marketing ploy, Neidermayer autographed a replica hockey stick then skated out back on the ice and tried to give it to a young fan in the stands.

Apparently some Duck fans failed to get the memo about allowing the children whose parents shelled out hundreds of dollars for glass tickets to have first crack at the stick. They are the most under privileged after all.

To make things worse, a couple of knuckle heads in the stands decide to throw down over the stick after the prized possession was simultaneously grabbed by more than one person.

Then all that is classy about Southern California rears its ugly head. Neidermayer tries to signal to a horrified girl that the stick was intended for her. The look on her face says something like, "Please adopt me Scott, and take me away from this life of lunacy."

Sorry, no dice.

Neidermayer skates away, leaving the kid to fend for herself.

In a show of girl power, the tramp-stamped, beer toting blond to her left takes on the two jackasses with one arm tied behind her back (actually, it was clenched to her beer).

You stay classy Ducks fans.
