The man behind the glass: Sadly, there was no mystery, no prank. Not even a publicity stunt.

Thanks to the diligent reporting of diligent Sportsnet reporter Ian Mendes, we learned the man sitting behind the Ottawa Senators bench Monday night was not part of a scheme or a plot. He was just a man who got his company tickets for a night, and he was just a man who happened to look exactly like the head coach of the hockey team he was watching.

According to Mendes, the man’s name is Mike Watson, and he was attending his first game in two years: “They usually give the tickets to clients, but I was able to go tonight,” Watson told him. (Photo: Jean Levac/Postmedia News)
