Everybody loves a good hockey fight, but goalie fights are next level. In a recent ECHL clash of the titans between the Cincinnati Cyclones and the Quad City Mallards, the two teams’ goaltenders squared up on the ice to throw them thangs.
The fight didn’t last long, the Mallards Adam Vay made quick work of Cincy goalie Michael Howser with a vicious one-punch knockout. Vay now has more knockouts than Floyd Mayweather has in the last 5 years.
The NHL has phased out fighting in favor of skill, but minor league hockey is all about brawling.
If Vay was 1/2 as good of a goaltender as he is a knockout artist, maybe he wouldn’t be playing in Quad City.
