Fighting Up

from the CP,

The NHL handed out 230 fighting majors through Sunday (201 games), up from 167 through the same number of games last year. All around the league, tough guys are taking names and leaving lumps.

The surge in fisticuffs early this season flies into the face of what had been happening. Fights have steadily gone down the last few years, especially after the lockout. In fact, this year’s pace is still behind the pre-lockout numbers. There were 299 fighting majors handed out in 2003-04 through the same number of games.

But the numbers are back up this season.
