Crazy AHL hockey brawl escalates quickly

Feb 18, 2014, 2:27 PM PST

It was a scene straight out of Slap Shot, but no one on the ice had the last name of Hanson.  On Sunday, members of the Adirondack Phantoms and Portland Pirates of the AHL threw down for a solid three minutes.

The dangerous brawl drags on ridiculously long as the referees do very little to break it up. Even the goalies got involved. Equipment was strewn all over the ice.


The Phantoms are affiliated with the Philadelphia Flyers and appear to have the upper-hand most of the time. In case you’re wondering, the Pirates are affiliated with the Phoenix Coyotes.

At least no one used a hockey stick or skate as a weapon.
