The NHL discourages fighting because they are run by a bunch of heartless cowards. The best brawls always come from the minor league ranks, and last night was no different.
During the Chicago Wolves’ clash with the Iowa Wild, an incredible fight took place. It was too awesome to settle on the ice.
A hard check into the boards led to the fisticuffs that weren’t resolved until the dispute spilled out onto the breezeway. It was closer to an 80’s WWF double-disqualification than anything resembling hockey. There’s even a damn shopping cart in this fight for some incredible reason.
Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat approved.
Thank you, minor league hockey. For fighting. This game wasn’t settled in a shootout, it was settled outside, behind the elementary school at the bike rack.
