Description

Fighting in hockey has always been controversial. While some stand up and cheer when the gloves are thrown off and two heavy weight titans go at it, others recoil at the site of bloodies faces and unconscious players. The debate has waxed and waned over the decades and has once again come to the forefront with the recent deaths of career pugilists Bob Probert, Rick Rypien, Wade Belak, and Derek Boogaard. While emotions tend to flare on this subject, this book may give the reader some perspective on the topic as it looks into the istory and development as well as the culture of fighting in hockey.
