Apparently what he really loves is the cheap stick work after the whistle. Nothing like poking someone in the back of the knee with your blade after the play is over, or getting in a couple extra cross checks after the game is over. He is such a leader he has most of his team mates trained to pull the same type of crap.

Ling has always been a pest. You probably don't last long in pro hockey at that size without doing that stuff.

Anyway glad to see him still around. I remember when he showed up in Providence in 2011 after years in Europe and was like "Wow, where'd they find him"? And yes I admit, he was a cheap shot artist when he played for the Bruins.

I wrote something similar a couple of months back, catching up with him after a Brampton visit to Indy. Ling played in Indianapolis early in his career and is the last active former member of the IHL's Indianapolis Ice.
