Rick Rypien, an undrafted enforcer for the Vancouver Canucks gets pissed off at some Minnesota Wild fan who is clapping as he is leaving the ice. The whole incident was preceded by an on ice shoving match between the Minnesota Wild players and Vancouver Canucks players.
As he is walking off the ice, Rypien simply shoves the fan who is claping in his face. He is escorted away before things can get any worse though. For this shove, Rypien got a 6 game suspension (way too long in my opinion).
Miss the good old days of hockey fights between players and fans. Such as when the entire Boston Bruins team got in a fight with the New York Rangers fans and entered the stands back in 79.
Great hockey fight video of two major junior hockey players going at it.
I always liked watching the juniors play hockey, they have a lot more heart and aspiration than the pros since they’re still at the start of their career and need an NHL team take notice, money isn’t their main issue yet. Always found the fights to be a lot more real in the juniors too.
Here, James Howard of the Niagara Icedogs get lots of good, clean punches on Zac Rinaldo of the St, Michaels Majors. Rinaldo get beat up bad, but somehow ends up being the one who brings Howard down. One of the players also gets a small cut as there is blood on the ice after the fight.
Loved Howard’s theatrics after winning the hockey fight!
My favorite hockey rivalry was the one between the Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Redwings in the late 1990s. They were two of the best teams of that time and would often meet in the most spectacular playoff series.
Here is one of the best hockey fights ever! Patrick Roy, a hockey goalie legend, and Chris Osgood square off in a heated game and now a heated battle. The announcer of this fight is loving it and gives some amazing commentary.
Enjoy this great goalie fight!
In this crazy hockey fighting video we see the bloody hockey brawl that set the NHL record for the most penalty minutes handed out ever with 419 minutes combined between the two teams. This bloody hockey brawl occurred on March 5th, 2004, near the end of the NHL regular season, in a game heated matchup between the Ottawa Senators and the Philadelphia Flyers.
The fighting starts with big time career NHL enforcer Rob Ray of the Ottawa Senators fighting versus another long time hockey enforcer Donald Brashear of the Philderlphia Flyers in a bloody hockey fight. After that fight, all hell breaks loose with every player on both teams fighting off the faceoff numerous times in a row. Even the two goalies, Patrick Lalime and Robert Esche, go at it but it’s a poor showing from the two of them.
This hockey fight was so big that it even has a BIG Wikipedia page about it!
