Last month, I went nuts on a trip involving a couple weird bucket list items. Of course, one of those is all Canadian NHL teams, and I earned the money to amble my way in and out of Winnipeg. That included WHL games in Calgary, Swift Current, and Moose Jaw, followed by a flight to Rapid City, South Dakota for an ECHL tilt.

5 games, no fights.

Back home in Portland, game in early December, undersized Winterhawks team, I get a fight.

The WHL was notorious for getting youngsters to fight. The old timers are complaining about the reduction of fighting. The only thing that really needs to be done now is to codify it as the oldsters die off and the increasingly rich kids whose parents are able to afford the sport aren't really interested in satiating the old-timers.
