Later at the doc's (upstairs) we made up and ended up becaming really good friends, joking about it a lot for years after. If it never happened, we wouldn't have been as friendly guaranteed.

In water polo, fighting is as rare as it comes, and so with a sport like hockey, where its more or less commonplace, I don't really see this as that big of a problem.

Point is, it happens, and I don't doubt they bought each other a beer after.
Hmm interesting point. I suppose the same could happen with hockey team mates.

This is not "staged" fighting. This is two young guys trying to make an impression, and playing with passion. Droping the gloves in the heat of the moment is part of the game, it happens very quickly and is simply a reactionary part of the game for many players. Werek got hammered got up was pissed and they dropped 'em.

IT'S HOCKEY!

As long as McNaught keeps the gloves on all will be fine. That kid could literally seriously injure some of these kids.

You have never gotten into it in practice with anyone? These are not games, they are scrimmages and the players barely know eachother.

Fighting in practice is all about establishing the pecking order. Who's going to establish themselves as "the guy". Who's going to step up. At the end o a tussle, both players gain respect from not only each other, but thier teammates and the staff as well. Spend enough time at a rink and you will see it's commonplace...At just about any level.

So? I played under those rules my whole life, and that never stopped me once. In fact, I've been in a couple of team on team brawls, those were fun. IT'S HOCKEY.

And besides, this is PRACTICE. Tempers flare up, even amongst teammates.

Guys this has been happening for years. Rookie camps, training camps, intersquad games. Heck, it happens at practice.

If anything it shows a compete level that coaches like to see.

I see nothing wrong with this. If we're concerned about them getting hurt in a fight, than we have to be equally worried about any of players pulling something, breaking something or otherwise getting injured.

In a game with ice, wooden sticks and rubber pucks, anything you do carries the risk of injury.
