Alexei Kovalev confronts Mike Keenan over infamous seven minute shift


Former NHL star Alexei Kovalev was a skilled offensive talent, who often took extremely long shifts. On one occasion in 1994, he took a shift for 65 seconds, which angered his head coach Mike Keenan because it was too long.

Keenan thought of an idea to teach Kovalev a lesson. Keenan's idea was to prevent Kovalev from taking a rest on the bench, by forcing him to play for 7 minutes straight!
