Kukla's Korner Hockey
Entries with the tag: minor league brawl
Just preseason, right? Whether it was retaliation for a dirty hit, or someone said something about the coach’s mom, it got ugly in an exhibition game between the Colorado Eagles and the Odessa Jackelopes.
The first two periods seemed like a typical minor league hockey game. A few fights, some goals…
Then the third period happened. 14 fighting majors handed out in the first 1:39, then the big one at 9:26 which resulted in Odessa captain Dave Van Drunen getting sucker punched by Brad MacMillen. The punch resulted in Van Drunen needing 5 plates and 18 screws to repair the damage.
MacMillen received 2 for instigating, 5 for fighting, 10 minutes and a game for instigating and another 10 for intent to injure.
