    Fat heads tend to be hot heads, research of NHL players finds
    Width of face predicts aggressive behaviour -- especially the Senators

    Fat-headed hockey players are more aggressive than their slimmer-faced counterparts, a study has found.

    And look no further than the Senators for proof. The study concluded that of the six Canadian NHL teams, the faces of the Senators are dead giveaways when it comes to predicting how much time players spent in the penalty box.

    "We're not saying that Ottawa is more aggressive than any other team. But each individual player's face predicts how much time he had in the box," said Brock University neuroscience researcher Justin Carré.
    Right-winger Chris Neil, with a facial ratio of almost 2.4 and about three minutes per game in the box, was at the opposite end.

    "(Chris) Neil was off the chart in the face ratio," said Mr. Carré.
