The OHL isn't anywhere near a goon league anymore. Even most of the tough guys only fight 6 or 7 times in a season, with a couple exceptions (I'm looking at you Bilcke).
I expect McCarron will drop 'em about that many times. He'll get a couple in early to announce his arrival but they'll really get down to playing hockey by Christmas and the Hunters will have him a key, mostly non-fighting role by the second half.
Look at London's fighting stats. Not a whole lot of guys dropping them often. Zadorov did two or three times in the first few games last year before the Hunters reined him in and made him a top-end defender. Mike is in very good hands now.
