Sarnia's coach (Perry) benched him and Hecimovic last year for violating team rules off the ice and taking too many dumb selfish penalties on it. In response Carcillo and Hec decided to stop showing up for team practices and basically walked out on the team. Eventually they went over the coaches head to the owner of the Sting to get their playing time back and down the line had more run ins with the coach, leading to Perry's firing.
In London last year at the first ever Re/Max challenge game (Russia vs. Canada), as some of the Russians were getting of the bus and setting foot in a North American arena for the first time, Carcillo was yelling obscenities and trash talking them in the hall... some welcome wagon. Luckily alot of them didn't even speak english.
In any given game Carcillo is usually good for at least one 'hissey fit', whether he loses it at the refs, an opposition team player, a coach or teammate. I'd love to know how many 10-minute misconducts he racked up in Sarnia.
His first cross-checking incident this season also occured against a 16 year old, rookie underager. Halischuk needed something like 22 stitsches and Carcillo's latest work Damaged McQuaid's mouth pretty bad, not sure about the stitch count, but McQuaid is going to need reconstrustive dental surgery.
The sad thing is that Carcillo is actually a decent player. He's got good hands for a guy his size, and he's actually reasonably skilled and he's obviously chippy. His skating is pretty poor, but that could be worked on. If only he wasn't such a headcase, I think he'd actually be a solid pest prospect for the NHL.
It'll be interesting to see if the Penguins sign him. I'm betting they do, and try and calm him down.
