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 1/24/11
Mike Komisarek - Toronto Maple Leafs

TMZ reported that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Mike Komisarek is a bit of trouble with the Los Angeles Police Department. The blueliner allegedly punched a woman at a Southern California nightclub hard enough to get credit for actually pummeling someone this season.

According to TMZ:

"…the 28-year-old defensive powerhouse was named in a police report filed by a woman who claims the whole thing went down after Komisarek decided to lift her up in the air at a Hollywood nightclub. We're told the woman claims she demanded Komisarek put her down -- but he refused -- so she slapped him in the face.

The woman claims Komisarek immediately set her down ... and then punched her in the face, causing her to bleed. The woman claims Komisarek left the club ... so she went to the cops. We're told investigators are hoping to speak with the NHL star as soon as they get the chance."

Just hitting a woman is bad enough, but punching hard enough to draw body fluids should draw a double infraction (kinda like a high sticking penalty, but one that lands you in the klink).

Not surprisingly, Komisarek ranks second in hits on the Maple Leafs, behind teammate Luke Schenn. Apparently Komisarek feels the need to catch Schenn any way he can.
