    Last season, there was a scary incident where George Parros, an enforcer who was well past his prime and on his way out of the game, fell heavily on the ice after taking a punch and cracked his head quite hard. He was lucky not to have suffered a more serious injury than a concussion.
    A couple of years back, a minor-leaguer was killed after falling to the ice during a fight and smashing his head.
    If anyone in major junior or the NHL ever gets killed as the result of a fight - the path towards legislating it out of the game will start blazing and there will be no putting out the fire.
    Of that much I am certain.

    If its not a sanctioned fight its harassment or assault as it would be outside the rink. Swinging punches at each other while standing on ice with blades on your feet always stumped me.

    I'm no prude when it comes to enjoying some recreational violence, but the tolerance of fighting in ANY non-combat sport always impressed me as a "see no evil" affair from a legal standpoint.

    Hockeyfights.com has touted this one as one of the better scraps so far this season.

    Seabrook steps up to defend star player Patrick Kane after he is run over a bit late by Slater.
    The Hawks could really use a bona fide Enforcer to patrol the ice and look out for Kane and Toews, but Seabrook does a decent job here...

    Callahan pokes the wrong veteran here and gets saved from a viscous beating by the refs.

    This one certainly isn't a 'best of' - but its news-worthy (apparently) because its Sidney Crosby. Arguably, the best player in the game today.
    With a history of concussion issues and the risk of injury etc. its a big deal to see a superstar of this caliber drop the mitts. Fights like this evolve out of frustration and intensity and have nothing to do with goonery, intimidation or showmanship.
    Even though its a shitty fight, this is about as legitimate a hockeyfight as you will see. People questioning the place of fighting in the game take note - even the most elite players in the game know it has a place.
