The only way to ban fighting is for the NHL to do it. Granted there might be some pressure by politicians.
It wouldnt have to be enacted in all states at once. If, say , New York decided that hockey fights would have to be sanctioned like a boxing match or UFC fight is to be legal, and otherwise the partcipants would be jailed for whatever... well then any team playing in that state would have to follow those rules.

Never underestimate the grandstanding ability of politicians and the stupid laws that can be made from them. Once one state goes, the rest will follow... like smoking or anything else they deem politically incorrect :/
