Fighting is as big of a part of hockey as any other element of the game, and in many ways has placed hockey on the North American sporting landscape.

There's an old joke that goes "I went to a fight the other day and I was shocked when out of nowhere a hockey game broke out!"

While it's true that this isn't always the case, hockey is known for incidents of players dropping the gloves and settling things with their fists.

The history of hockey is full of memorable bouts between both players and teams. Some of these forays have even created rivalries between teams that have withstood the test of decades.

Hockey has also become a spectacle for both casual and avid fans alike due to lessened punishments on fighting compared to other professional sports, resulting in many more instances of punches being exchanged.

Here is a look at 20 standout fights from the last 20 years of NHL hockey.
