Heat warning in effect

Feeling the pane, but both OK

The consensus across the NHL is that Dustin Byfuglien has one of the hardest shots in the ol’ loop.

And two female fans felt the after-effects of a Byfuglien blast at the end of practice at MTS Iceplex Tuesday when one of his shots shattered a pane of glass at the end boards where they had gathered to watch.

Spectator Gabrielle Pruce got a surprise souvenir at the end of Winnipeg Jets practice after a Dustin Byfuglien blast broke the glass. It was a spirited intrasquad scrimmage in front of hundreds of school kids and fans at MTS Iceplex.

Both girls received minor cuts and afterward Byfuglien not only made sure both were OK, but signed pucks and pennants, posed for pictures with them and gave both autographed sticks.
