Who says there isn't any hockey going on right now? Why half the OSG Sports Media front office went and took in an ECHL game our ownselves this past Saturday.
It's all minor league hockey, which isn't such a bad thing. In fact they don't mind having crazy on-ice brawls in the minors.
Check out one that took place this past weekend in the AHL. Rockford Ice Hogs vs. the Lake Erie Lock Monsters.
The fight starts innocently enough, lots of pushing and shoving around the goal, as hockey players are wont to do.

Andrew Shaw was suspended six games in the American Hockey League for leaving the bench with the purpose of starting an altercation with AHL tough guy Patrick Bordeleau... although the league certainly tacked on to that lengthy suspension after he went rogue ala Stu Grimson-style after the fight.
Shaw made national headlines for his actions as Puck Daddy picked up the story. After...
“Fiesta” your eyes on the Los IceHogs jersey, a special-occasion alternate for the AHL Chicago Blackhawks affiliate Rockford IceHogs. I’ve been trying to come up with an occasion that would require a hockey team to dress like that, and I’ve come up with two believable options:1.
