Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Kesler reignited his feud with Nashville Predators centre Ryan Johansen with a tweet earlier this month, which Johansen believes he should regret.

Kesler, who had been silent on Twitter dating back to February, tweeted at Johansen on Aug. 5,A writing "Howa€™s summer training going? Want to meet me in the streets before we get going on the ice?"

Johansen responded within hours, though not directly at Kesler, saying "I'll pay for your parking."

The Predators forward told Adam Vingan of The Athletic that he believes Kesler should have just stayed silent.

a€œI dona€™t know what he was doing that day,a€ Johansen said. a€œClearly I dona€™t think he was thinking right because he made a little bit of a fool of himself.a€

The bad blood between the two forwards started during the 2017 Western Conference Final when Johansen called out Kesler after Game 2 of the series.
