But if you love a good-old fashioned dust-up, then the YouTube video of an American Hockey League fight featuring Winnipegger Frazer McLaren might get your juices flowing.
A seventh-round draft pick, (203rd overall) of the San Jose Sharks, McLaren – who played seven games with the NHL club last year – has spent most of this year in the AHL with the Sharks’ farm club in Worcester.
McLaren and Portland Pirates forward Joel Rechlicz got into a nasty battle in the first period of a game Tuesday night, eventually won 7-2 by the Pirates. Those two clubs have combined for 29 fighting majors in seven games this year and meet again this Sunday in Worcester.
