Non-MMA Knockout of the Day: McLaren KO’s Dziurzynski in Leafs-Senators Game, 0:26 of Round 1

(Props: fcfightlog via Deadspin)

During yesterday’s NHL game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators, Toronto left-winger Frazer McLaren and Ottawa forward David Dziurzynski¬†dropped their gloves¬†just 26 seconds into the first period, and after a few seconds of Fyre/Takayama’ing, McLaren shut the Senators rookie completely off with a right hand. Dziurzynski fell directly onto his face following the knockout blow, reportedly suffering a concussion. Dziurzynski didn’t return to the game, and required eight stitches to close a cut on his chin. Toronto went on to win the game 5-4. As McLaren explained afterwards:

“I hope he’s OK,” McLaren told the Canadian Press, adding that he had asked Dziurzynski to fight because the Maple Leafs started out flat in their last game. “I was just trying to get us going early. I asked him (to fight) and he actually said no, so I thought we weren’t going to go and then he ended up dropping his stuff there when the puck dropped. He’s a big guy and he actually gave me a few good ones early there.”

Hockey. The child porn of ice sports.

There aren't rules FOR fighting, it's against the rules, but there are customs and practices. The rules are that the instigator of the fight, gets a game misconduct and a penalty, while his PIC gets just the penalty, generally. That's for a fight where both guys square off, drop their gloves and scrap by consent. The unspoken rules of fighting in hockey are you stay on your feet and the fight is over when someone is knocked down. The refs don't break them up because it's more dangerous to break em up than to let it go, as once you take guys off their feet, their razor sharp blades are flailing around. The reason is typically a gentlman's agreement between two bruisers to fight to pump up their teams. But a fight is also the way a team retaliates when an opponent goes after one of their star players with an illegal hit or something. They send the bruiser to kick the guys ass and send a message.

Thanks, Shogun of Harlem. So if two dudes scrap to pump up their teams, both get a penalty? Couple of minutes in the box?

Generally both players will receive 5 minute penalties for fighting as opposed to the usual 2 minute penalty if there is no obvious instigator. There is actually a semi famous band called "Five For Fighting" from Los Angeles. I say semi famous because although i don't listen to pop-rock music I'm from Canada and I've still heard of them so they must be somewhat big right? But yeah they get their name from the five minute fighting penalty in hockey.

Can anyone explain to me, for real, the rules governing fighting in hockey?
