The YouTube uploader says this took place during a world invitational tournament held earlier this month in Chicago. At the 13-second mark, keep your eye on the top of the screen, where a player for the Toledo Cherokee reacts to getting elbowed to the ground by a player for the San Diego Jr. Gulls by clubbing him in the face with his stick. Luckily, according to the uploader, the Gulls player was protected by his slash guard. The Cherokee player is reportedly facing a hearing before USA Hockey. His victim was bruised but not seriously injured.
