Are You a Fathead?

The Proceedings of the Royal Society, a prestigious research institute, has concluded that hockey players with fat, round heads take the most penalties.

Fatheaded hockey players are more aggressive than their slimmer-faced counterparts, a St. Catharines, Ont., study has found.

Results of the study published Wednesday in the prestigious Proceedings of the Royal Society, concluded of the six Canadian-based NHL teams, the faces of the Ottawa Senators are dead giveaways when it comes to predicting how much time players spend in the penalty box.

“We’re not saying that Ottawa is more aggressive than any other team. But each individual player’s face predicts how much time he had in the box,” said Brock University neuroscience researcher Justin Carre.

My own personal experience has shown this to be true, with the exception of a certain goon that used to skate for the UND Law Hockey team.
