Hockey player Holden Anderson has been banned by his own team after severely injuring opposing player Julien Desrosiers with a move which looked more like a move straight out of the octagon.
The incident between the two players, which happened in the top division of French Ice Hockey, has led to Anderson being slammed by hockey fans and media alike for his actions, and while confrontations between players can often be commonplace in hockey, this wasn’t normal.

Desrosiers, a forward for Bordeaux, was knocked unconscious by Amiens’ Anderson in the incident and reportedly suffered an acromioclavicular, or shoulder, sprain which will rule him out of the rest of the regular season.
It is expected that the French Ice Hockey Federation will issue Anderson with a further suspension in the coming days.
