    Another fantastic week of hockey is in the books and another group of fights is ready for your viewing pleasure.

    As usual, we have some of the heavyweights in the hockey fighting world as well as some newcomers to the fist party.

    The fights at this time of the year are always solid and this week didn’t disappoint.


5. Sean Avery vs. Micheal Haley

1 of 5

    This fight starts off like a lot of fights in New York do, with Sean Avery yapping.

    Avery looks to be just trying to hold onto Haley before Haley lands a few good shots.

    I don't know how Avery got cut, but I bet Haley's status as a fighter in the NHL went up for bloodying Avery.

4. George Parros vs. David Koci

2 of 5

    This video starts with George Parros laying out an Avalanche player and David Koci taking exception.

    Parros is a heavyweight, but Koci has had his share of fights as well.

    They exchange hard shots with nothing landing square, but both men hold their own.

3. Jared Boll vs. John Erskine

3 of 5

    I love when the video starts with normal play and then everyone just stops. Then the video cuts two willing participants standing at center ice ready to throw hands.

    This fight is like two dump trucks driving at each other, eventually their going to hit and no one will win.

    The duo throw wild punches until they both fall to the ice. This was an exciting, but short fight.

2. Francis Lessard vs. Darcy Hordichuk

4 of 5

    From all accounts, you could have seen this from a mile away. There was previous history between both men and it carried over.

    Both Lessard and Hordichuk come out swinging and it’s hard to tell what is landing and missing.

    You can tell there is serious animosity in this fight and both men get their share of punches in.

1. Jay Rosehill vs. Milan Lucic

5 of 5

    This fight had shades of Dan Carcillo against Marian Gaborik before I realized Lucic is not Marian Gaborik.

    This fight brews from honest tension between both teams and it spills out into the right circle.

    While Lucic isn’t a fighter per say, they both exchange good shots and Lucic holds his own.
