Of course he has. Do you mean recently?
He lost a fight to Shawn Thornton last year.


According to Neil's hockeyfights.com page, he loses 1-to-3 fights per year.

I've never seen Neil get clobbered, but he's lost fights before.

I don't remember that, did he lose bad, or just get out punched?

Did he go down??

He has lost fights before but he never gets his ass kicked or dropped. He simply fights smart and defends himself in a fight. It is easy to get concussed frequently if you don't defend your chin and just throw hay makers.

This...it's also the reason he rarely (if ever) ends up "KOing" a guy. He fights smart and does some damage. He's a very tough guy and I don't recall ever seeing him get dominated, but he's lost fights for sure.

You have to be careful with some of those fights. There's a Grabovski Neil tussle that shows Grabovsky as the winner, even though there were all of two or three punches thrown before they went down. A lot of the Grabo votes were Leaf fans or guys calling Neil gutless for going after a non-fighter.

Even the Thornton fight, Thornton has 76% of the vote, but the fight was a near draw.

I can't remember a fight where Neil was decisively beaten. Most of his fights are close.

He's probably the 'smartest' fighter in the NHL. I've never seen Neil put himself in a vulnerable position.

He clearly lost a fight against Lucic but to Neil's defense, Lucic speared him between the legs with his stick just before droping the gloves.

Agreed.

Most of his "losses" are close, and I subscribe to the "he's a smart fighter" narrative, but to say he doesn't lose fights is looking at Neil with rose-colored glasses.

Still love the guy.

I love Chris Neil so much, probably the guy I respect the most in the NHL. He's the perfect bottom-6 player... Hopefully he still has 4-5 good years left.

He means so much for the Senators, the days he retires will be a sad sad day... I could see myself punch somebody who disrespect him, even if I am a peaceful person.

A few people have gotten the best of him but he's never gone down and never gives up. The only reason that Hockey Fights have him listed with as many losses as he does is because other people are upset he's beating up their tough guys. Hes probably the only guy currently in the league that fights regularly that hasn't really even gotten beat up by anyone.

Sure, it's a loss. It's not him getting destroyed though, and I think they had a much more even fight the next time when Lucic didn't can open him and then jump him.

The only time I ever saw Neil get cut badly was against Lucic in the fight people have posted here, but Neil came back in that fight & gave Lucic a couple of good shots to the head late & Lucic was looking to end the fight. He took a lot of punches against Brashear but again came back & never quit.

Orr seems to have gotten the better of Neil in the fight above although Neil got some good shots in too but tonight I thought Neil clearly won the fight. I also don't remember if Neil has fought some of the big enforcers in the west from yrs ago. I still think Ottawa needs another guy just like Neil who is about 4 inches taller & 20 pounds heavier.

Another great showing by Neil just how classy he is. The sweater comes over the head and Neil could have really hurt Lucic...what does he do instead? Stops swinging.

As opposed to...
