The most they could do is make fighting a match penalty, but even that won't stop it completely, and, in a contact sport, will probably just lead to worse alternatives, like more slashing, elbowing, or spearing, all of which would be far more detrimental to the game - and more dangerous for the players - than fighting.
The league has done a decent job getting out in front of stuff like this, where the NFL did not. It'll be interesting to see if the players settle.
