Protect the player with glass

Steven Penman, Winnipeg, Man.

I got a good laugh when Duncan Keith sprayed an obnoxious fan with a Gatorade bottle while sitting in the penalty box, but it raises the question as to why there is a large enough space into the penalty box for a fan to be able to harass him.

It seems as though the league should implement a rule that requires all arenas to fully enclose the penalty boxes to prevent this lack of respect towards the game and players from continuing.
