Now THIS Is a Minor League Hockey Brawl

by 5 years ago


This brawl, from yesterday’s Portland Pirates-Adirondack Phantoms game, has everything you want in a minor league hockey fight. It comes in the waning seconds of a losing effort. There’s a dog pile at the blue line. A goalie who’d been pulled for an extra skater comes off the bench to get back into the scrum. It’s a joy to watch. But the best part is at the 1:00 mark at center ice, where a Phantom’s player throws haymaker after haymaker after haymaker.

The teams combined for 10 fighting majors on the sequence alone. The whole game featured 299 minutes of penalties.
