At Least Nine Actual Punches Landed In Wild ECHL Goalie Fight

'I swear I'm a nice guy'


March 1, 2021

On rare occasions, a goalie fight ends in something other than embarrassment for the participants.

But more often than not, netminder dust-ups feature nothing but air-mailed punches, if any are thrown at all.

Well, a Sunday night ECHL game between the Utah Grizzlies and Wheeling Nailers produced a goalie fight that might go down as one of the best of all time.

The fight, which took place with nine seconds left in Wheeling’s 6-1 win over Utah, saw Nailers goalie Francois Brassard land at least seven actual punches. All told, somewhere between eight and 10 punches were exchanged between Brassard and Grizzlies netminder Kevin Carr.

Take a look:

But wait, there’s more.

A fan captured Brassard’s hilarious celebration as he skated off the ice.

Nothing like a hard-earned Discount Double-Check.
