On October 9th, 2012, we all learned a valuable lesson: Everybody has a bad day once in awhile, even a perfect human being like Brooks Laich.

In the Kloten Flyers’ 4-3 loss to Tyler Seguin‘s EHC Biel, Laich had one of his worse games as a pro. He garnered 16 penalty minutes — including a misconduct for checking Eric Beaudoin in the head — and oh yeah, he scored on his own team.

Video below.

Laich’s (wearing 42 in blue) own goal is at the 35-second mark. Laich also participates in a scrum at 1:25.

Ten minutes into the first period, Laich realized things weren’t going his way when his attempt to redirect a cross-crease pass went into his own net. In the second period, Laich took one roughing penalty, then immediately exited the box and got in a scrum involving former Hershey Bear Jacob Micflikier. 5:39 later, Laich got too aggressive and checked Beaudoin from behind headfirst into the boards, which resulted in a two-minute minor and a misconduct.

Meanwhile, EHC Biel’s first line, which consists of Seguin, Micflikier, and Emanuel Peter, dominated Kloten. Micflikier scored two goals, including the game-winner to give Biel its first win in Kloten since 1994.

This is the darkest timeline.

    Lockouts aside, I’m glad our teams don’t wear advertisements all over their uniforms.

    Those uniforms look like a Nascar Nightmare.

    Well…at least Micflikier’s seeing some success these days…

    Poor Branded Brooks!

  • If Brooks gets a game misconduct for that play, who gets a season’s misconduct for those uniforms?

    When I saw the original tweet about Brooks’ bad day I thought RMNB was doing schtick like “The Onion”. Either that or their Twitter was hacked. Turns out the sky IS falling! Everything I’ve ever known to be true is a lie!

  • Nomo

    Every team wear these type of uniforms in Europe… sadly

    Misconduct, not game misconduct actually. I’d rather see my team playing in those than not playing at all to be honest 😉
