Video: Ristolainen and Chiasson had one of the worst fights of the year

Not all hockey fights are created equally. Sometimes haymakers are thrown and they connect. Other times no one ever throws a punch and it’s more of an awkward hugging match.

In the case of Rasmus Ristolainen and Alex Chiasson, we have ourselves an absolute stinker.

You can tell that the players are mad at one another but it looks like neither have working extremities. It is a sad, sad excuse for a fight. We have come to expect more from hockey’s best pugilists.
