Lots of things take years to build and some don’t. Sometimes rivalries begin when you enroll at a school, some start when a player is drafted by an organization. Some rivalries grow from the ground up at the lower levels of the organization before reaching the top levels.  The Chicago Blackhawks and Vancouver Canucks are now huge rivals and after last night’s AHL game it seems like we can pinpoint where the hatred for players on each roster begins.  Here is the video of last nights fight between the Rockford Ice Hogs and Chicago Wolves.

Yes that is Jeremy Morin throwing punches from the bench so it will be interesting how many games Morin gets suspended for, but anyways enjoy the hockey fight.

What did you think of this hockey fight? Imagine if Brandon Bollig had still been in Rockford! Thanks to Blackhawk Up Facebook friend Steven Marcyk for sharing the video with us.
