What the puck did he just say?
University of Denver goalie Tanner Jaillet had no filter Saturday night after the Pioneers defeated Minnesota-Duluth, 3-2, to capture their eighth NCAA championship.
Jaillet, winner of the 2017 Mike Richter Award–which goes to the best Division I goaltender–was interviewed by ESPN on live TV after his 38-save performance but did not seem to notice, or care, that the cameras were there.
“We stuck to our game plan, we made some plays and we f—ing won ,” he said.
Indeed they did.
While Jaillet starred in net for the Pioneers, Jarid Lukosevicius was named most outstanding player in the tournament, scoring all of Denver’s three goals in the second period for a hat trick.
So while ESPN may be on thin ice with the FCC, Jaillet and the guys on Denver certainly earned to say whatever the f–k they want after winning a national title.
