WATN: Arron Asham Knocks Out Jay Beagle, Regrets Next Move

Former Flyers scrapper Arron Asham threw down with non-pugilist Jay Beagle during last night's 3-2 Capitals win over the Penguins, and man did he beat the poop out of him. Here's video of the fight, but also what Asham regrets doing after the fight.

Former Flyers scrapper Arron Asham threw down with non-pugilist Jay Beagle during last night’s 3-2 Capitals OT win over the Penguins, and man did he beat the poop out of him.

What you don’t see in that clip is that, as Asham skated away, he did this:


Puck Daddy relays that Asham later felt pretty bad about it, probably right away actually, once he saw that Beagle was in a pretty bad way on the ice. Feeling ashamed (sorry), Asham gave Beagle some respect as the Capital skated away from the bloodstain he left on the ice, and pulled his own tooth out on the way to dressing room.

Wyshynski has full reaction from Asham and others.

I agree it was a dick move, but it’s also understandable and not wholly indicative of Asham being some callous piece garbage. With all the adrenaline that courses through you in and just after a fight, it’s not too surprising to do something you might otherwise regret. I think Ash deserves a pass for it, especially after coming clean that his act was “classless.”
