Keith "the class act' Yandle

Hey guys. If this was already posted, I am sorry. I just wanted to pipe in and say that I saw Keith Yandle to something pretty amazing that I thought he should get props for. It was against Vancouver earlier in the year( I know it has taken a while to say something) and it was something I haven't really noticed before.

Yandle was going back deep into his own zone to chase a dump in with a Van player right on his back. Yandle got to the puck first and then sent a pass around behind his net. There was some incidental contact and the Van player fell and was going to go head first into the boards. Yandle dropped down, put his arm around the fallen players head and stopped them both from sliding into the boards.

I just thought that was really classy and I wanted some attention brought to Yandle for that.

Thanks for sharing. It is always nice when someone comes along with something positive to say about a player.

Yandle is such a good player and hard worker. He is going to be a stud. Along with Z and OEL....and others. I love our D situation.

True, and it's awesome when opponents look out for each other.

I love the breakout season Yandle is having. I would like to see him shoot more. He tries that fake shot and pass off to the side almost every time and it hasn't been working lately.
He has a great shot and I would love to see him go for the net more. Rebounds, tip ins!!

I actually think he does a really fine job of recognizing when the shooting lane closes. There are a number of times when he does that move where the shot would have been blocked high and likely would've led to the puck leaving the zone.

I remember that play really well and agree with you. After they stopped Yandle then patted the guy on the helmet a few times, which I thought was pretty funny. Well done.

Yandle has always seemed like a pretty cool cat, this doesn't surprise me at all!

Thanks for sharing this observation. I was not aware of this incident but I am happy to hear that Yandle obviously respects his opponents and looks out for their safety.

Well done, Keith!
