The Chicago Blackhawks were in the mood to entertain fans of the interwebs during their prospects development camp. They hooked up 2012 fifth round draft pick Garret Ross and had him troll other players looking for a fight. Free agent Chris Martin decided he was game and the sounds of their fistacuffs can be heard here.
I love the clarification before the gloves were dropped: “‘Do you want to go buckets off?’ I was like, yes please, I do not want to punch your helmet.”
As Puck Daddy points out, “The best moment of the clip, of course, was the post-fight conversation/instant review of their fight, in which the combatants decided they needed to “go again” to give the onlookers “something better than that.”
Take note, Gary Bettman. More mics = more interesting = more hockey fans…perhaps. The idea of putting mics on players definitely couldn’t hurt anymore than going “buckets off”.
