A HOCKEY FIGHT FEATURING ICE, PUNCHING

By 11.19.08

Today is crazy slow in sports news, which means it’s time to start mining the NHL for video of hockey fights.  And voilà, here’s a scrap between Calgary’s Eric Nystrom and the Avs’ Ian LaPerriere, the latter of whom obviously became an enforcer to compensate for a fruity last name.

Honestly, it’s a pretty unremarkable fight, but there’s a moment at the 0:33 mark where Nystrom tears off LaPerriere’s helmet, and it seems possible — almost likely — that Nystrom is going to beat LaPerriere with his own helmet.  And then… he doesn’t.  But you can imagine how cool it would have been. Great story, right?
