NHL star Logan Couture tweeted out Wednesday that he was “sucker punched” for talking about voting “for the Republican Party.”

“I spent last night in Toronto Ontario,” the San Jose Sharks player wrote. The post was noted by “I talked about voting for the Republican Party, and I mentioned Donald Trump by name.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“I was sucker punched,” he added. “Is this really what we are coming to? If you vote you are a villain? Man this world is so wrong.” (RELATED: Mike Milbury Stops Commentating NHL Games After Comment About Women Not Distracting Players)

The Shark’s captain is a Canadian native so can’t vote in the election in November and when pressed by someone over his tweet, the player responded it was after he mentioned his dad was “a police officer” and if he could he would “vote Republican.”

“Craziest part is I don’t vote,” he added in a second post. “I mentioned my father being a former police officer. I really don’t believe this is the world we live in.”

The NHL star concluded his tweets by responding to another person who said it was a “sensitive time” to talk politics.

“And I’ve learned that,” Couture wrote. “I’ll never talk politics in public again. Just crazy to me, if you speak your own opinion violence happens. Even crazier, people are okay with it.”
