Including this one from Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche, David Booth of the Vancouver Canucks only has three career fights in the NHL. Based on what he did to Mark Olver, we can only assume he's trying to protect the rest of the league from utter destruction.
Besides Booth's bomb-tossing at the expense of Olver in the first period, the best part of this fight was definitely the "NO, HE'S MINE!" moment at the start when Maxim Lapierre attempted to step in. (A noble gesture,
given Booth's history.)

Booth, of course,
has some bitter history with the Avs that may have sparked this intense response — one that, no joke, made Booth a worldwide trending topic on Twitter. More NHL coverage from Yahoo!
