Toledo Walleye

Toledo Walleye head coach Nick Vitucci has shown that he can have a bit of a temper. Recall his going nuts on a referee in 2012 after feeling an opponent should have been given an instigator for fighting a top Walleye defenseman.

To honor that moment in coaching tirade history, the Walleye are holding an "Anger Management Night" on Jan. 3 when they face-off against the Reading Royals. The first 2,000 fans will be given Vitucci bobbleheads capturing the key moment of his anger that night: tossing a water bottle at the ref.

That's four water bottles, a stick and a clip board if you're keeping count.

We now sit and wait for the New Jersey Devils to create a bobblehead featuring Robbie Ftorek's best known moment as an NHL head coach.
