An insane incident broke out during a Men's League game where players were seen swinging their sticks to assault opposing players.

Players Take Crazy Overhead Swings With Their Sticks at Opposing Team During Insane Bench Clearing Brawl



The brawl appears to have broken out as a player approaches the opposing team's bench and then proceeds to use their stick to attack one of the players on the bench.

The brawl then quickly escalates as several players start fighting on the ice, and one of the players on the bench uses their stick to retaliate against one of the on-ice players. Take a look at the video below.


Dangerous brawl breaks out in Toronto men's league with multiple players using their stick as a weapon.


This is not Fighting, This is Borderline Assault with a Stick and Has No Place in Hockey


Fighting in hockey is under immense scrutiny. There are people calling for it to be completely eliminated from the game, and many junior leagues are taking the next steps to remove it.

Whether or not you believe fighting has a place in hockey is one thing. This is a completely different incident. Using equipment as a weapon to assault opposing players is not hockey, and is a disgusting display for our game. Players should be banned, if not suspended for the entire year, for acts like this.
