You don't see a glove toss between benches too often in the NHL.

When you can’t throw punches... throw gloves?

During Thursday's matinee game against the Boston Bruins, New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin was in a heated argument with world-class pest Brad Marchand. He then decided to use his glove as a projectile when both players were on their respective benches.

Sometimes there’s nothing else you can do but toss a glove at a guy.

There were just 12 seconds left in the game, so something must have really gotten to Panarin considering he was so close to heading to the locker room to celebrate a 5-2 win, in which he registered a goal and an assist.

According to the receiver of the mitt, they were discussing timely topics.

“That one caught me off guard a little bit,” Marchand said after the game. “We were talking about what we had for Thanksgiving dinner. He didn’t like what I ate.”

Panarin received a 10-minute misconduct, and it might even get looked at by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for what will most likely be a fine—if they even pay attention to it.

Equipment tossing is becoming a mild trend across the league. In another high-profile instance during a nothing game in April, Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon hilariously sent then-Coyotes forward Conor Garland’s helmet back into his own face.

What’s next? An elbow pad? Some pants? Maybe a shoe taken by a fan from Mike Milbury? We will keep you up to date with all the latest involving hockey equipment getting gently thrown at hockey players, here at Yahoo! Sports.
