Bad blood certainly didn’t drive this hockey fight.
Minor league goaltenders Adam Vay and Michael Houser briefly fought Wednesday in an ECHL game between the Cincinnati Cyclones and the Quad City Mallards. The fight didn’t last long, as Quad City’s Vay effectively iced Cincinnati’s Houser with a single blow.
But Vay then shocked the world with an admirable show of sportsmanship.
Despite his decisive victory, the Quad City goalie offered his hand to Houser to try to help him up.
The bonds are strong within the goalie fraternity.
