from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
The NHL will be keenly baring watch on a new fighting rule announced Wednesday by the Ontario Hockey League.
The OHL, starting this season, will target one-dimensional players who do nothing else really than fight. Any player who garners an 11th fighting major on the season will incur an automatic two-game suspension, the OHL creating a threshold system to discourage serial fighters.
First of all, kudos to the OHL and its longtime commissioner David Branch for having the courage to tackle an issue that divides hockey people like few other subjects.
