anyone know what the aftermath was for this??
142 penalty minutes, eight players and both head coaches suspended.
Shawn Lalonde left the penalty box and will surely be suspended along with Rob Flick, who was the catalyst of the event. They sent all the players to the dressing room, resurfaced the ice, and played the rest of the second period.
Hogs won 2-1 in a shootout.
I wrote a bit more in a post on Bleacher Report’s ‘Hawks page.
Sorry for the slip, the eight players and coaches weren’t suspended, just ejected from the game. I’m sure suspensions will be doled out, though.
Old School Hockey at its best!! I grew up watching the Fort Wayne Komets. I saw quite a few bench clearing brawls in my time.
