Matthew Tkachuk added PIMs in bulk this week, taking the easy way to 10 minutes. The Florida Panthers agitator was handed a misconduct in the waning moments of a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. The referees had a parade to the box, with over 60 penalty minutes handed out in the contest. Tkachuk wasn’t the only beneficiary of the loose standard. Teammate Ryan Lomberg was also handed a ten-minute misconduct in the match, inching him closer to the top of the leaderboard.

It was another ornery seven days for Austin Watson, who has made several big jumps up the leaderboard over the past few weeks. The Ottawa Senators forward added 17 minutes over his past three games, securing a spot in the top seven on the PIMs list. Most of that time came on a hit against former teammate Tyler Motte, now of the New York Rangers.
