It's no secret that the National Hockey League has produced some exciting moments over the years. The professional league with the most difficult piece of silverware to acquire—the Stanley Cup.
Sometimes on the road to the championship, one must use intimidation to prevail.
This is where these warriors of the frozen pond come into play. Broken hands, bloody jerseys and a lot of Kung Fu fighting. We could debate if fighting has its place in the NHL all day, evaluate the pros and cons and consider the nefarious effects this might have on the players involved.
Or we could just sit back, crack open a cold one and enjoy 15 of the NHL's must-watch fights.
Pictured to the left is legendary enforcer Bob Probert who passed away in July. He's been in some of the fiercest battles in history. Although he's only featured twice in this slideshow, we strongly suggest you use your favorite search engine to look him up. Trust us, you won't be disappointed.
This is not a "Top 15" list, it's simply a collection of fights that would have had you out of your seats if you were in attendance. Every single pugilist featured here would give you a run for your money on the ice. Standing toe-to-toe until one of you falls. An homage to old-time hockey.
Are you ready? Are you ready?
