NHL Has No Plans To Change Fighting Rules

from Erika Tucker of GlobalNews,

The sight of Montreal Canadiens enforcer George Parros hitting the ice during a fight with Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Colton Orr Tuesday night has rallied both supporters of fighting in the National Hockey League, and its detractors.

But the NHL says Parros’ injury won’t lead to the removal of fisticuffs from the game.

“At the current time, there is not an appetite to change the rules with respect to fighting,” said NHL Senior Executive VP of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell in an email to Global News.

Regarding Parros’ injury, he said:

“We never like to see players injured, but the nature of the game does result in players being injured from all types of aspects of the game.”
