I can't believe he said that!

A former National Hockey League superstar has just made some shocking comments about Calgary Flames agitator Matthew Tkachuk, and frankly we can't stop laughing. 

Tkachuk has earned himself a reputation as one of the best agitators in the National Hockey League and considering just how many penalties he has draw since making his NHL debut, there is an argument to be made suggesting that is in fact the very best at it.

That hasn't gone without notice in the league and while no one is surprised to learn that Tkachuk has rubbed opposing players the wrong way, it turns out former NHL stars have taken notice as well. 

One former NHL superstar says, while laughing, that Tkachuk 'has that face you just want punch,' and while the comments themselves are surprising to hear from a former player, the identity of that player is the biggest surprise. None other thank Keith Tkachuk, Matthew's father. 

"That to me is an effective player – a kid who's engaged," said Keith Tkachuk as per The Athletic. "Does it go a little bit overboard sometimes? Yeah. But guys are going after him because he's engaged every game."

It's nothing short of hilarious to hear Keith admit something so amusing about his own son, so how would he react if they two were on the ice together while playing for opposing teams?

"I'm sure if I played against him, I'd go after him, too."
