Killing the art of fighting in hockey

Recommended Posts

 

From an article by Mike Campos on thesinbin.net

The ECHL made a rule change to hand out suspensions to players getting in ten or more fights during the season. The league will give out automatic one-game suspensions after ten fighting majors, increasing to two-gamers after 14 scraps.

I asked SPHL boss Doug Price if the league would follow suit. I received a quick one-word answer – No.

Thank you! Fighting is a necessary part of the game and it should not be messed with.

It's stupid rule in the first place.  If the guy is just there to fight anyways a 1 game suspension isn't really doing anything.  If they had the rule the SPHL had before changing it where you play a man down with a suspension it might mean something.  They say the purpose was to get rid of the staged fights and hopefully just happen on their own instead of planned.  Last year we had Nick Wright with 11 and Joe Tolles with 10.  I don't really see the need since SPHL season is 16 games shorter than any other higher league.
