The National Hockey League has been having it's prospect tournament these last few days, and during this span we've seen quite a few fights already.

Players are trying to stand out and make a name for themselves in these games, and a lot of the time that means dropping the gloves so you get those few seconds of fame and highlighted in an article like this.

During last nights game between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg jets, Adam Klapka and Wyatt Wilson dropped their gloves and were looking to fight, when the two linesmen got in the way and stopped the fight from happening. You can see the players are at this point more upset at the linesmen than their opponent.




We've seen a significant decline these past few season when it comes to fighting in the National Hockey League. Is the NHL finally stepping in to stop fighting all together?
