Sport: Hockey
Team: Buffalo Sabres
Hateful lowlight: Eye-gouging Travis Moen in 2009

Steve Ott just never knows when to keep his mouth shut. Known as a shit-talker and a constant agitator, Ott loves to get under the skin of everyone-fans, officials, players, hot dog guys-you name it. Sometimes he can literally get on your skin. Last April, he licked Jeff Halpern before a faceoff. Yuck. Halpern ended up winning the faceoff. We all know he loves to run his mouth, but Ott should bite his tongue more often.
