Fighting in hockey is a rare sight on the international stage (especially in the women’s game), but according to Team Canada captain Hayley Wickenheiser, this isn’t the first dustup the two world powers have been involved in.
“We had a similar scrap in 2010, so I guess we have one every Olympic cycle to get it out of our system,” Wickenheiser told reporters after the game, via Canoe.ca.

I remember an interview years ago with a male ref in Roller Derby.
He said he had his skull fractured a number of times and was bitten, kicked in the slats, etc. while reffing the woman’s matches.
He said they were worse than the men.
Sorry, I had to go get some ice.
I was watching the fights one time and a hockey game broke out.
it’s part of the game, period.
Were the Hanson sisters involved?
I played hockey for 20 years and loved the fighting.
they are worse than men. it’s just a mytth.
i would change redskins, okay, but i will only change the name to foreskins.
US player runs Canada Goalie and turtles after being challenged. Both teams come in to discuss and two individuals get a little animated. Would be interested to see how penalties shook out. I know the faceoff is outside the zone. Nothing too earthshaking. However if I was the US player that ran the goalie and turtled I would definitely increase my on ice awareness the next time the teams meet.
As an individual who has done his share of lining hockey at different levels, one never, never, grabs a player from behind and immobilizes their arms like that. It is begging for a free shot after which the place is up for grabs
are you saying they’re worse than men?
One thing I will say about officiating women’s hockey. They are way more creative with trash talking and insults to opposing players than guys ever will be. Some of the things I have heard on the ice from the ladies REEEOOOOOOWWWEEERRR They also can play the game....
Video from Youtube:
If parts of uniforms were flying, then we need pics.
its standard, there’s no fighting allowed in IIHF competition, be that as it may, you and me both know as players there’s a code to be upheld, and this sorta thing doesn’t surprise us.
Doc Emrick could not have said it better.
That is a very biased photo.
Girls hockey looks like a training ground for diesel dikes.
not familiar with the term...sounds nasty....
Went to a fight one time and a hockey game broke out.
Think Rosie ODonnell, but uglier and less feminine.
Oh my you mean DYKES
no wonder my search engine failed, LOL
I’m a very biased poster :-p
Yeah it’s an old term for manly women.
You’re right, I misspelled it.
I duuno, guys just get right down to business, two designated enforcers drop the gloves, circle & maneuver, then fire repeated shots to the head. Usually they get tired & the linesmen separate them before there’s any real harm done. No hair pulling IIRC.
What’s this all about?
yea but when has there ever been fighting in girls hockey that was sanctioned the men’s leagues are the only ones who allow for it, that’s not to say womens hockey is any less legit, but you’re right, you’re not going to find any enforcers on a womens squad,
I think a Women’s Hockey League would be more entertaining than the WNBA.
Canada is a world power??
that’s hard to say, i imagine a womens pro hockey league would be about the same as the lingerie football league...
not because that’s how i want it, but thats how corporate sports would. and hockey doesn’t need that kind of image.
