ECHL cracking down on multiple simultaneous fights


Fights are going to happen in hockey, but the ECHL wants its teams to cut out the extracurricular rough stuff.

After incidents have led to about 50 games of player and coach suspensions in recent weeks, league officials sent a letter to teams last week calling for an end to fracases that go beyond two players dropping their gloves in the context of the game.
Mike Murray, the ECHL's vice president of hockey operations, stated the league has averaged less than a fight per game the past three seasons, and the letter was sent to teams partially because of the suspensions in recent weeks.

"Fighting is part of the game, and it won't be discouraged between two willing participants. But this must occur within the rules in professional hockey," Murray said. "The letter was a message that we plan to continue to enforce the rules to the fullest extent."
