The Pre-Season has begun and so with it comes a change in the name of this weekly “column”. We are changing it to Fight Of The Week, something I think is more appropriate for the upcoming season. The first fight that is worthy of the honor is Columbus Blue Jaket Cody Bass Vs. Minnesota Wild Jake Dowell.
This is a pretty short fight, but it brings me back to the days when people would punch with wreckless abandon. Much of the NHL is safer and safer for its players long term, but oh how I do love a good hockey fight.
Anyways here you go.
