You saw the video last night of the Ice Hogs/Wolves fight but if you didn’t see it here is the link. The AHL finally came down on the Hogs by giving Jeremy Morin, Wade Brookbank, and Shawn Lalonde a one game suspension for their role in the fight with. Chicago Wolves defenseman Adam Polasek got 3 game suspension for leaving the bench during the fight.
I really enjoy good bench clearing fights like in the 80’s so this was a fun one to watch, but it really surprises me that Morin was fighting on the bench and only got a one game suspension, so in the future in the AHL, fight all you want on the bench just don’t leave the bench!
What do you think? Did Morin get off easy?
