Ready for more hockey fights? Of course you are and you’re in luck as you’ve come to the right place. Once again, we picked the five best hockey fights from the previous week of NHL action and this week we have some real gems.
5. Chris Neil (OTT) vs Ryan Reaves (STL)
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – Reaves is one of the best fighters in the NHL. That once again proved to be the case here as he easily dispatches Neil.
4. Nick Ritchie (ANA) vs Kurtis Gabriel (MIN)
There’s a lot of grabbing and jostling between Ritchie and Gabriel, but the fight is still pretty good. Another player from the Wild completely steals this week’s rankings, but that shouldn’t subtract from an enjoyable draw between these two players.
3. Milan Lucic (EDM) vs Deryk Engelland (CGY)
Lucic made plenty of noise this past week with a devastating hit on Austin Watson, but he also did pretty well in this fight against Engelland. The win has to go to Engelland, but the two did a great job of putting on a good show.
2. Tom Wilson (WAS) vs Brett Ritchie (DAL)
Props to the broadcast for capturing a great view of this fight. Wilson and Ritchie put on quite a show here, and while they both did a nice job, it’s Ritchie who emerged the victor.
1. Lawson Crouse (ARI) vs Chris Stewart (MIN)
This fight between Crouse and Stewart was so good that we actually featured it individually earlier in the week. Crouse stepped up to Stewart and he regretted it in a big way as the veteran beat the hell out of the rookie. You’ll have a hard time finding a fight quite this lopsided.
