Up Close With McCabe

from ESPN,
In this edition of Facing Off, McCabe talks about his family lineage in baseball, why he isn't an NHL "tough guy" and why he no longer sports a Mohawk. Q: You've had 54 career NHL fights. Who would say is the toughest guy you have fought in the NHL? A: Troy Crowder beat the snot out of me my first year in the league. He put my nose on the other side of my face. I learned in a hurry that I wasn't a tough guy [laughs]. Q: Why would you fight a heavyweight like Troy Crowder? A: I don't know. He hit one of our good players and I just happened to be on the ice. I was young and dumb. Out of my 54 fights, I might have two wins [laughs]. That's not a good average.
