Flyers top goaltending prospect Anthony Stolarz has found himself in trouble after slashing an opponent in the back of the head.

The incident occurred in Game 3 of the Ontario Hockey League's Western Conference Quarterfinal series between the London Knights and Windsor Spitfires. Stolarz and the Knights went into the game with a two-games-to-none series lead.

Leading 3-0 in the first period, Stolarz stopped a shot from the point and controlled the puck for a stoppage, while taking a slash from the Spitfires' Josh Ho-Sang. After the whistle, Stolarz calmly stood up and struck Ho-Sang in the back of the head with the blade of his goalie stick.

The referee determined Stolarz's actions worthy of only two minutes for high sticking, which seemed fortunate for Stolarz and the Knights.

The game turned into a laughter as Stolarz made 24 saves on 26 shots as the Knights trounced the Spitfires, 10-2, for a 3-0 series lead.

The 6-foot-6, 20-year-old Stolarz posted a 25-5-1 record, 2.52 goals against average, .926 save percentage and four shutouts in 35 games played this season.

The Flyers selected Stolarz in the second round (45th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
