I'd knock him into next week if I was part of the Canadian team.
And you would be doing exactly what he wants. He has served notice -- the refs will now be on the lookout for any kind of retaliation, and if the Canadian players fall for that they will be spending time/energy looking to "knock him into next week" instead of just looking to knock the whole team out of the medal round.
That's fine, I would plan on beating them anyway, but if I saw him motoring around, I'd knock him down for sure.
