from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,
Not only are fighters dropping at an alarming rate, the incidents of pugilism have gone up sharply this pre-season. In 29 games through Sept. 20, there had been 39 fights for an average of 1.34 per game. Compare that to last year’s pre-season, when there were just 92 in 105 games for an average 0.88. In 2005-06, there were 111 fights in 108 games for an average of 0.97 per game.
Of the 29 pre-season games so far, there have only been five where there have been no fights.
According to hockeyfights.com, the Philadelphia Flyers lead the league with nine pre-season fights, including three from Cote, who also leads the league.
