Bench Clearing Brawls

What are the penalties for Bench Clearing Brawls? My dad always tells me it something insane. I know the coach gets suspended for 5 games or something like that but what are the penalty minutes and stuff for these??

You get an automatic suspension if you leave the bench. Then on top of that all the majors, unsportsmanlikes, game misconducts, etc.

I've always been curious whether the 2nd or 3rd guy off the bench faces any kind of penalty.

The first player who leaves the bench to join in a altercation gets a 10 game suspension...if the whole bench empties...who knows?

If both teams clear the bench is the game canceled? I know it's happened in the WJC and such, but in the NHL, say the playoffs...you can't exactly cancel the game at least not easily.

So the first guy off gets 10 games, everyone else gets what? Can't put everyone in the box. First of all why does only the first guy get suspended? I guess it has to do with him being the cause of everyone else clearing in defense. Who knows.

Or... how about the NHL appreciates how hockey used to be and stops being dumb****s about it and let what happens, happen. Until it goes overboard obviously with cheapshots and stuff. But a brawl between Bruins Pens for the Cooke-Savvy thing, or a classic bruins-pounding-on-little-habs brawl would be great to see.

Old time hockey!!! I miss that time, now the NHL is very different and is more important a cheap shot than a tough guy who instigate a fight.

I was never a fan of bench clearing brawls, thats when bad things happens. Line brawls is nice to see though.

Of course there is exceptions to me not liking bench clearing brawls.

How can you miss bench clearing brawls? Oh, let's stop the game for 20 minutes while we get basically the same amount of actual decent fights as we'd see in a routine line brawl, except we also get 25 other guys crowding around them and milling about posturing like they actually want to fight someone. Wooo.
