Brenden Dillon is a Canadien hockey player that plays for the San Jose Sharks, he went toe to toe with Austin Watson in a fight that pretty much sums up every single Canadien I have ever met, literally the most polite and respectful people you will ever meet:

This should be shown to every advocate that wants to get fighting out of hockey. They aren’t all vicious. Fights in hockey make the game that much more exciting. It’s literally the only sports where you can duke it out then go sit in the penalty box for 5 minutes, feel some shame, then return to the game. It’s an element that none of the other major sports offer. If you want to take a cheap shot at a smaller, star player, you’re going to face the consequences. It’s the same in life and it should be the same in my sports.
These guys here get it. They fought it out, wasn’t the best of fights, then joked around about it literally seconds later. This is why I love hockey.
