As long as hockey has been around, so too has fighting within the game, whether it be to defend a teammate, settle a dispute, or just as an emotional response during a tight, hardly-contested game.

While most fighting during hockey games occurs on the ice, sometimes it can occur between fans as well. Packing rival fans into the same building and adding alcohol into the equation can sometimes lead to emotions boiling over. Such was the case during the Anaheim Ducks/Winnipeg Jets game this weekend.

As the Jets stormed through Anaheim, securing a 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks, taking over the NHL lead in points, a handful of Ducks and Jets fans had it out on the concourse, with one Jets fan actually knocking a Ducks fan entirely unconscious with a violent slam onto the hard tile floor.




Thankfully, according to reports, nobody was seriously injured as a result of the altercation. The Ducks fan was seen towards the end of the video regaining consciousness, which is certainly good news given how scary the slam on such a hard surface was.
