BREAKING - NHL's Development League to Ban Fighting

To see their teams play live, fans must pay a price—and often an absurd amount. Sometimes fights break out during games of all levels, which makes the ticket price much more worthwhile. Nevertheless, what if fighting is slowly prohibited from hockey?

This is the case with the QMJHL, one of the top developing leagues for the NHL, which intends to establish a rule that would permanently ban fighting in their league. They have already begun to crack down on fighting this season by giving each fighter a 10-minute major penalty in an effort to put an end to the fighting, but it has had little success.

The following information was provided by a QMJHL spokesperson:

The QMJHL is planning to have a rule in place that will ban fighting, making it black and white that it is no longer a part of our game. The punishments have not been decided as of yet. We will be looking to have a rule in place in June when the next general annual assembly of the members of the board of governors takes place.




Although there is no set rule to ban it yet, past reports give the impression that any players engaging in fighting may be banned from the game altogether.
