Flyers rivals son disrespects referees during ECHL game

The Flyers organization knows all too well when one of management's children chooses to make a poor choice which ends up blowing up on the Internet and on television.

It appears that the Rangers now faced the same issue with head coach Peter Laviolette son, Peter Laviolette the third decided to insult the referees while playing a game with the Penguins ECHL affiliate, the Wheeling Nailers.

The Nailers were facing off against the Reading Royals when Laviolette was called for a roughing penalty and a 10-minute misconduct during the third period after a run in with Steve and Leonard of the Royals.

This kind of behavior can't happen during a game even though some may have found it amusing and it remains to be seen on whether he will face a fine from the league office. I would also expect his father to have a few words regarding his conduct on the ice.

The Nailers ended up beating the Royals 3-0.
