Darien Hatcher Accused of Biting Travis Zajac
The Devils accused Philadelphia defenseman Derian Hatcher of biting Zajac's finger through the glove during the second period of New Jersey's 3-0 victory over the Flyers in Newark last night.
Hatcher was not penalized for the alleged act, which surely will bring an investigation by NHL VP Colin Campbell.
"If he's cut, good, but I didn't bite him," Hatcher said.
Hatcher claimed Zajac face-washed him with his glove, which caught on one of Hatcher's teeth.
Zajac, who returned to action in the third after the middle finger of his left hand was stitched up, said Hatcher didn't say anything to him.
"My finger was in his mouth, so I don't think he could," Zajac said. "There was a scrum in front and I guess my hand got close to his mouth and he bit me."
