Down Goes Dziurzynski
By: Mike Stone
I love me some hockey fights, but I have to say I do find it a bit bizarre when two guys duke it out before the game is even 30 seconds old. Wednesday night in Toronto, Maple Leaf tough guy Frazer McLaren took on Ottawa rookie David Dziurzynski and for Dziurzynski it was not a fight to remember.
McLaren asked the Senators rookie to battle and was turned down before the game started. Dziurzynski changed his mind and will obviously regret that decision. McLaren nailed him with a right cross and down went Dziurzynski. He was knocked out cold and suffered a concussion. McLaren said it was a “lucky punch”, but nonetheless was one he will never forget.
