This is the best hockey fight video we’ve seen in a long, long time. Does it matter that the NHL is still locked out? Nope, because as long as the AHL is supplying fight videos like this most people won’t even notice. In Saturday’s game between the Binghamton Senators and Syracuse Crunch, Senators goalie Robin Lehner got poked and prodded by nearly every member of the Crunch. Madness ensued.
Guys paired up, but there weren’t punches being thrown…until Lehner emerged and started throwing some cheap shots at a Crunch skater. Not happy with the situation, Syracuse goalie Riku Helenius came down the ice to encounter Lehner. Bad move Helenius, bad move.
Some fans reached out to Lehner on Twitter in the days after the fight:
Point to @LegendKiller613. Lehner wasn’t challenged out of the blue. Unwritten hockey rule you don’t sucker punch a guy in the head who’s already in a fight.
P.S. Am I the only one who expected Lehner to just lose his sh*t and pull a Dean Portman?

Robin Lehner was not a fan of having his crease crashed Saturday night, and he chose to share those feelings by trying to fight anything on skates in a different-colored sweater.
The Binghamton Senators goalie absolutely lost it in the second period after members of the Syracuse Crunch crashed Lehner's net pretty hard, taking some liberties after the whistle...
Twenty-one year old Robin Lehner, the heir apparent to the Ottawa Senators goaltending throne, is currently in his fourth-year of development at the professional level. Many scouts believe that Robin Lehner may be close to NHL-ready, but even the ultra-talented Swede cannot overcome three major obstacles at this juncture: (1) The NHL lockout; and (2) Craig Anderson.

The story of Riku Helenius is a sad one. Drafted fifteenth overall in the first round of the 2006 draft by Tampa Bay, the Finnish goaltending prospect has so far failed to live up to expectations. Much like the Senators’ selection of Mathieu Chouinard, Helenius is another textbook example of attrition that so often plagues...
The American Hockey League is definitely worth watching now that the NHL is locked out and will be for some time and on Saturday night it lived up to expectations.
In a match between the Syracuse Crunch and the Rochester Senators, one of the best things to ever happen in a hockey game occurred. Crunch goaltender Robin Lehner and Senators goaltender Riku Helenius duked it out on...
For those of you craving some NHL, this should get you your Monday morning fix. Courtesy of The Score we have video of a very one-sided goalie fight between during an AHL game between the Syracuse Crunch at Binghamton Senators. The two participants are Robin Lehner and Riku Helenius. There is absolutely a clear cut winner in this fight and as a hint we will tell you that it is...
Grant Sonier a former NHL front office employee/scout who writes for ESPN Insider has published his top 20 prospects (note: it’s behind a paywall) playing outside the NHL. Sonier, if you’ll recall, was somewhat bullish on Ottawa's pipeline.
To develop the criteria for who could be included on the list, the process was limited to players who have not started...
