Fighting is a part of hockey culture because we’re all out there with knives on our feet and a weapon that your always whacking slashing tripping your opponent with (stick). Fighting is a natural way to level the playing field when someone is playing with excessive faggotry with said weapon.
Drop the stick and gloves and let’s go there bud.
Same reason as to with why lacrosse also has fighting. My 2 cents as a
Leaf who’s played both.
