ST. PAUL, MN By the virtue of the fact that four of Chris Kellys front-and-center teeth are already false Chiclets, undergoing emergency dental work isnt anything he hasn't endured before.
But it was still a tough Saturday afternoon in Minnesota for the Bs third line center, who spent a few hours getting his teeth repaired after a practice accident.
Kelly said his two front teeth disintegrated in his mouth after he tumbled face-first into the boards during Saturdays practice. The local dentist called upon to work on Kelly used his 12-year-old son as an assistant while Kelly had several teeth bonded.
He was a nice guy who was nice enough to do it on a Saturday," Kelly said of the dentist. "He actually couldnt get hold of any of his assistants, so he had his 12-year-old son to start and he had a hockey game in a couple of hours. Nice people here in Minnesota. The two that I lost, they just ended up bonding them together.
Its never easy losing your teeth. They just basically disintegrated in my mouth and I was spitting them out all over the ice. I think I got hit by a couple of pucks that day too, so I guess its just the way the day was going."
Kelly is suited up and ready to play for the Bruins against the Wild this afternoon at the Xcel Energy Center.
Things escalated very quickly during a Division III game in Nashua, New Hampshire on Saturday as two members of the Daniel Webster College men’s basketball team were arrested for their part in an on-court brawl.
Daniel Webster was playing conference rival Southern Vermont College when Daniel Webster guard Marquise Caudill threw a punch at an opposing player, stomped on him and then incited a brawl with 14:34 left in the second half.
A brief YouTube video of the beginnings of the fight was posted by D3Hoops.com:
Caudill was one of two Daniel Webster players arrested in the fight as the Associated Press reported that it took 25 police officers to restore order after the fight. Southern Vermont was awarded a win via forfeit as the final score was officially 2-0.
The 22-year-old Caudill is being held on $50,000 cash bail on the charges of assault, criminal threatening and disorderly conduct.
Caudill’s teammate, 23-year-old Antwaun Boyd, was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct as he was released after bail was posted.
One other person was also arrested in the incident as 43-year-old Elizabeth Morris was charged in connection with the disturbance. She also posted bail and was released.
Perhaps the craziest side note about this brawl is that this was the final home regular season game for Daniel Webster College, as the school is shutting down at the end of the year. This was also Daniel Webster’s only home loss of the season as this incident has cast a black cloud over what should have been a memorable final home game for the school.
