Buffalo Sabres center John Scott called Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf "Princess Phaneuf" after a multiple-player skirmish during their game on Nov. 16.

In the eyes of Buffalo Sabres center John Scott, Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf is "Princess Phaneuf."

According to Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun, "Scott was ejected along with Frazer McLaren of the Leafs at 5:34 of the third after a series of near scraps began when Phaneuf narrowly missed being leveled by Scott in the open ice."  

Phaneuf maintained he slipped, per Longley. 

Nonetheless, the Sabres center didn't hold anything back when he spoke with Buffalo radio station WGR. He said,"All of a sudden, I'm not allowed to hit him anymore. He's Princess Phaneuf. It's a joke." 

He also tried to justify his actions when he spoke with the media after the game.

"I went for a hit, Phaneuf bailed. I got dragged down from behind and got 14 minutes. So I think there was more of a precaution. They didn't want anything to boil over. They just told me to leave the ice." 

Here, Scott was apparently referring to a preseason free-for-all which was sparked by a tussle between him and the Maple Leafs' Phil Kessel after a faceoff, per the Toronto Star's Mark Zwolinski. He also ruled out Toronto seeking revenge during the Nov. 16 game, adding he didn't want to be labeled "a meathead." 

"It's getting a little old, but I understand it. I defintely have a reputation that comes with me. Obviously, this year isn't helping. What are you going to do? I'm just going to keep doing my thing." 

Toronto left wing James Van Riemsdyk scored two goals as the Maple Leafs beat the Sabres 4-2 on Nov. 16 to snap a three-game losing streak.
