Massive hockey brawl: Players ejected, coaches battle, announcer goes nuts (Video)

In the Federal Hockey League on Saturday night, the Danville Dashers fell to the Watertown Privateers 6-2. A five-goal third period pushed Watertown to the win on the back of three power play goals.

Aiding the final period barrage was plenty of power play time, thanks to a full-on brawl earlier in the period that saw 152 penalty minutes handed out and both coaches getting involved.

(It's 17 minutes, but worth it.)


The no. 2 reason why we love minor league line brawls are the over-the-top play-by-play announcers. No one can match their WWE-like intensity when calling these things.

As for the brawl, here's the visual evidence of the third period penalty summary:

Yes, nine skaters received a game misconduct, along with Danville's backup goalie for leaving the bench. Only Danville's goalie, Nick Niedert, who kicked things off, avoided getting hit with a game misconduct.

And, as you saw, Watertown was left with one player on their bench for the final 12:52, which saw them score three more times.
