The last time we checked in with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs, they were "celebrating" Hispanic Heritage Weekend by slapping a sombrero and a mustache on their mascot. Last night, they traded racism for goonery, starting a massive brawl at the end of a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Wolves.
With four seconds left in the game, the Wolves' Guillaume Desbiens went into the IceHogs' bench while checking an opponent. That's when Jeremy Morin decided that it would be a good idea to punch Desbiens in the face, setting off both benches and allowing all hell to break loose.
Chicago's Jim Vandermeer gets the Badass Award for charging straight into the IceHogs' bench and trying to fight the entire team by himself.
