Kraken’s Jordan Eberle battles Avalanche’s Logan O’Connor

It appears Jordan Eberle was still paying retaliation for a playoff hit last season when the Kraken faced the Avalanche on Tuesday night.

The former Islanders forward dropped the gloves with Colorado’s Logan O’Connor just over a minute into the match as the two exchanged heavy punches.

The fight ended as quickly as it began when the linesman jumped into the fray after O’Connor pulled Eberle’s jersey over his head.

The fight appeared to be related to a hit Eberle gave Avalanche forward Andrew Cogliano last year in the first round of last year’s playoffs.

Eberle caught Cogliano in a vulnerable position with a hit and pushed him headfirst into the boards in Game 6.

Cogliano suffered a broken neck following the hit and missed the final game of the series when the Kraken upset the 2022 Stanley Cup champions.

Eberle suffered no additional punishment following the play.

Tuesday’s fight was only the third of Eberle’s career, according to Hockey Fights.com.

Before the fight with O’Connor 1:20 into the game, Eberle’s last fight came back on March 3, 2019, when he was still with the Isles and he faced Travis Konecny ​​of the Flyers.
