NHL veteran knocks out rookie in brutal hockey fight

Fighting as become an integral part of the NHL, it brings in fans and it creates excitement for neutrals who otherwise wouldn't be too interested in the game.

Ofcourse in the NHL, there are players who fight and those who don't. In this video you can see Rich Clune of the Nashville Predators and veteran of 32 career fights take on rookie Patrick Wey, who has just one scrap during his first year in the league.

The fight is actually pretty well matched for a couple of seconds until a brutal gut shot on Wey sends the rookie to the ice.

The Caps head coach, Adam Oates was not too happy about the incident:

“I’m surprised the guy [Clune] would do that, but they had contact, they kind of looked each other in the eye and Patrick also didn’t back down.”

Wey might be backing down next time if he doesn't want to be on the wrong end of Clune and his veteran fighting skills.
