I could have been watching the game on RDS and my French is a little rusty. ))) So, I'm sure others will get to the bottom of why he's wearing the cage.
He was punched by Alexandr Svitov a few years ago. I don't remember if it was a sucker punch or an actual fight, but Svitov is dangerous and he's huge.
