Out of the four major sports, hockey is my least favorite. It never got my attention, even in the late ’90s when hockey took over Detroit. The one aspect about the sport I really do like is the fighting. I used to have VHS tapes of the best hockey fights. That’s all I ever wanted to see out of the game — and since fights didn’t happen every game that is most likely a big reason the game never hooked me.

Today, however, there is a rare fight video, and it showed some sportsmanship. The video comes from the North American Hockey League, which is a Canadian hockey league. The one thing about Canadians that most people like is they are known to be friendly people. Who knew that even translated into hockey fights?

As you can see in the video above both players just lay into each other — For a minute straight these dudes are just hammering each other. I personally thought the fight would be over when the dude in the black jersey just machine gun punched the player in the white jersey IN THE FACE. That was not the case at all. Homeboy in white held his own and continued to punch one another.

The end of the fight is what shocked me the most!
