NHL player Sami Vatanen joked at the expense of Canadian journalist Amanda Stein when the New Jersey Devils practiced on the morning ice on Friday.

Stein was canning his report in front of the camera at the edge of the trough.

After the woman focused on the verbal fireworks, Vatanen appeared on the scene and fired the puck firmly at the plexus.

Stein was startled by a loud surprise stroke and loudly let out a word referring to the woman's genitals from her mouth.

The reporter posted a video of a hilarious mockery on Twitter.

- I am making an official complaint to the HR department about Sami Vatan, because he is a danger in the workplace, Stein probably wrote a tongue in his cheek in connection with the video.
