VIDEOS: Matt Cooke's Questionable Hits On Zach Bogosian, Evander Kane

Blogger Daniel Tolensky has created an interesting composite picture of Matt Cooke and some of his more questionable hits through the years. It's certainly a lot more lengthy than I expected it to be, and it includes hits on Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian.

Here's the hit on Kane from December 28th:


Of course, Cooke would probably be hesitant to go after Kane with a clean hit or actually fight the guy, what with what happened last time he tried to do that.

Here's the hit on Zach Bogosian:


Despite what the Pens announcers might say, when you view that hit from the camera angle head on, it's pretty clear that Cooke nailed Bogosian with a knee on knee. Bogo was not particularly happy about that and promptly let Cooke, who was skating away and whining about the penalty, know that he was upset.

Kane isn't the only Thrasher to get aggravated with Cooke. Ilya Kovalchuk went after him November 21st, 2009, and was so incensed that he didn't care that his jersey was pulled up over his head.
