Prior to the game starting, you knew there were going to be a few scraps in this game due to some of the previous matchups this season, but I don't think anyone saw a bench clearing brawl. The fight resulted in 13 player ejections, six suspensions, and a goalie fight. This all happened on the IceHogs annual Pink in the Rink night, where the home players don pink jerseys and auction them off after the game to support breast cancer awareness.

Usually I shoot over the glass with a 300 2.8, but decided for some reason to shoot on the ice this game. Glad I did!

1. First fight of the night (not the actual brawl)

2. Goalies squaring off

3. The fight which resulted in the benches clearing - you can see the Grand Rapids players coming off the bench in the background.

4. Linesman racing in to pull a player away

5. Players locking up all over the ice amongst all of the equipment.

For those interested, there is also quite a bit of footage of the brawl on YouTube. You can just do a search for IceHogs Griffins brawl and you'll get plenty of results.

I love how goalies skate across the rink and punch each others brains out in a bench clearing brawl. Hockey fights are a joke!

Well as a hockey fan I hate it when it gets to that level. I wonder if with this junior hockey you are suspended for leaving the bench. I remember many years ago the LA Kings and Buffalo Sabres had a major brawl. Adam Mahr left the bench and get a nice suspension. It was a very costly suspension to the Kings as you can't call up a player either when someone get suspended.

I agree that when it gets to this level it's uncalled for. For photo taking purposes, it's great, but as a fan, I don't like it.

As far as the AHL rules, leaving the bench is a 6 game suspension, and the coach gets at least one game for the team which left the bench first.

I'm not sure how the rules work in the AHL as far as suspension and calling players up, but I do know that one of the teams signed two different players to ATO's (Amateur Try Out contract) which is basically a call up. After two of the player suspensions were over, those players on ATOs were released. For the NHL, since the AHL is basically the only place they call up from (excluding Euro leagues) I can see why they won't allow call ups, to teach the teams a lesson to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

AHL is not juniors. ..

Juniors though will get a couple of games. We had one player last year got 7 games and he wasn't "really" off the ice (just getting ready to step off) but I think part of those games were because after getting pulled out of one fight, went and took on another guy...

Fighting is not supposed to allowed in the NAHL (tier II Juniors) this season. Square off=ejection but they're letting some scrapping get by. Usually punished with 2 minutes for roughing. ...

Some awesome shots there! I remember seeing the video of this the day it happened. As an old school hockey fan, I don't have a problem with fighting and even with the bigger scrums but there was one player in the video, #15 I think, who should get a huge suspension. I think there was 2 or 3 times he was separated and then came flying back in to another square off.

Nice shots, boys will be boys. These things may make the game of hockey look bad, but it serves so many purposes. Gets it all off the boys chests, team bonding is huge when this stuff happens and if the refs cant figure it out, then its on. It is part of the game and should be there. Too many things happen if fights are not allowed. Sticks get higher, hacks are harder, hits from behind, running at guys, supermanning the goalie... fights just kind of settle everyone back down! Nice work!
