Video: Tkachuk Earns his minor for holding the stick on Burns

Ah, to be young and in love--with BEING A PEST!

Flames' rookie Matthew Tkachuk swipes Brent Burns' stick and takes off with it, earning a minor for interference.

Here's how Flames coach Glen Gulutzan explains it:

"I don't know. It was in his gut, then it was in his pants, then it was on our bench. "I'm sure he could have handed it back, but if you know the kid he's not gonna hand it back."

Tkachuk would go on to score the tying goal late in the second then create the screen for Dougie Hamilton's game winner at 17:41 of the third.

Safe to say he's out of the doghouse already.
