I have watched hundreds of WHL games and don't ever remember that happening once....

If a 16 or 17 year old makes the CHL they are SPECIAL and not just some thug. When they fight it is each other. The guys who are "fighters" won't make it until they 18 and sure they might have to answer the bell to a very rare 20 year old thug but that is how you make a name for yourself. And since you can have only 3 20 year olds fighters usually have at max a 2 year CHL career.

This is still hockey and there are unwritten rules about stuff you do and don't just like Thornton doesn't go after Crosby. A 19 year old WHL tough guy doesn't go after Reinhardt or Lazar.
