A New Era: Major League Makes Headlines with Official Fighting Ban

Earlier afternoon, the QMJHL made a divisive announcement.

To prevent fights, the major junior league implemented severe regulations.

Automatic game misconduct for a fight instead of a major penalty and a 10-minute misconduct.

Automatic one-game suspension for the instigator.

Two-game suspension for an aggressor.

This might significantly alter how major junior hockey is played in Canada around the world.

Do you believe that other leagues will follow suit and outlaw fighting?

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
