There's no fighting allowed in the WC, so he'd be kicked out of the game, and in the NHL turtling doesn't necessarily mean someone is going to stop throwing punches at you. Lots of players hit people when they're down. I'm glad Emelin fights back even if he sucks.

The big problem with Emelin is he allows himself to get jumped early in the fight. The other guy always seems to throw a dozen punches before Emelin gets one in. I think he's trying to protect the side of his face that has the plate, so he fights sideways. It's an awkward way to fight, but likely necessary.
