We might have a new little feud between broadcaster and player.
Last week, former NHL head coach John Tortorella took some shots at NHL superstar Connor McDavid saying he should just shut up and play and will never win a Stanley Cup unless he improves defensively.
The "shut up and play" reference was in regards to McDavid's criticism of NHL referees during the offseason as he was hoping to see more consistency from the refs this season.
He hasn't seen it.
McDavid was asked again about despite playing massive minutes, he just can't seem to draw penalties.
His answer was a little jab at Tortorella.
"I guess I just gotta shut up about this" McDavid said with a smirk refusing to give anything other answer.
Check out the clip below.
