Minor league baseball tries to attract fans with zany promotions. Minor league hockey does the same thing, except replace “zany promotions” with “genuine, life-threatening rancor in all-out melees.”
I’d somehow never seen this 2007 fight between the Halifax Wolverines and the Summerside Western Capitals, but it was definitely worth the wait. The fireworks begin with some cowardice at the 38-second mark, then Wolverines start diving over the boards into the opposing team’s bench, the Caps start a gang beating of one of the Wolverines, refs fruitlessly try to break things up, goalies fight, and three fans were decapitated with sharpened hockey sticks. Probably. It might have happened off-camera.
