Mike Milbury Reiterates He Wants Fighting Out Of Hockey (Video)


Mike Milbury wants to remind you that he still believes fighting should be removed from hockey.

During the first intermission of Wednesday night’s Boston Bruins-Detroit Red Wings game, the NBC Sports analyst reiterated comments he made last Wednesday about fighting in the sport.

“The blows suffered with these kinds of fights are the same that are covered in concussions, and they put a player at risk for long-term problems,” Milbury said.

While the former Boston Bruin takes a very anti-fighting stance, he changed his tune a bit when he said he wanted to see the referees let Colorado Avalanche winger Jarome Iginla and Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf go at it Tuesday.

After Milbury made his comments (again), he and fellow analyst Bob McKenzie engaged in a brief debate.

Fighting in hockey probably won’t disappear anytime soon, but clearly the same goes for Milbury’s strong opinion on the matter.
