Fighting in ice hockey: Was watching ice hockey match today and was surprised to see players fighting, I think its an established aspect of ice hockey with both amateur and professional players fighitng rivals. Despite lots of criticism, it is a considerable draw for the sport, and some fans attend games primarily to see fights in ice hockey isnt that intresting. Some fights are spontaneous, while others are premeditated by the participants.While officials tolerate fighting during hockey games, they impose a variety of penalties on players who engage in fights. Unique to North American professional team sport, the National Hockey League (NHL) and most minor professional leagues in North America do not eject players outright for fighting but major European and collegiate hockey leagues do. Therefore, the vast majority of fights occur in the NHL and other North American professional leagues.
