Friday Night New Jersey Devils Fights: June 13, 2014


I was thinking of starting a new weekly series and this will be the first of many New Jersey Devils fights. I looked around on YouTube just to be sure that there were many fights to choose from and each player that I have in mind has a lot to their name.

This series could also open up to all of the NHL as this series is purely for the enjoyment of another hockey fight.

In the spirit of my Cam Janssen poll yesterday, I have decided the first fight will go to Cam Janssen. This fight took place on October 15, 2011 against Brian McGrattan of the Nashville Predators.

This fight is very symbolic of the kind of person that Janssen is. You see he starts to get roughed up right away, but he eventually sneaks his arm out the way he wants to and well, you see what happens as this over 2 minute fight takes place.

Thanks to hockeyfights.com for the video:

As you saw, once Cam dragged the fight on, he was still asking for more. Cam has always shown that he has a lot of heart. Towards the end, you can also see McGrattan smiling. I’m not sure if that was out of respect for Janssen still egging him on or just disbelief that he was still going.

Cam landed a couple really good shots towards the end of this pretty good fight.

Tune in next week for more.
