Hockey: 9-Year Olds Involved In Hockey Brawl

At the end of this video of two under-10 Russian youth hockey teams engaging in a sprawling fight, you see a team parent lecturing one of the players at center ice. Oh, to be a fly in the rink for that chat:


The video doesn't shock me at all.  This is the kind of stuff that's being going on in Hockey since the sport started. Whether it's the pros, or just some House-League team, this sport - worldwide - needs to clean up its act.  

The NHL need to be doing a better job of educating the coaches and the children that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated at any level - especially with the amount of players come out of Russia. Problem is... in a league that condones fighting on a night to night basis, I don't know what the real answer is here? Is it time for the NHL to look into cutting fighting out of the game? That's the only solution I can think of.

In North America's defense... I doubt we would let it get that out of hand. Those Russian kids remind me of the those little bastards from THE BROOD. Pure evil!
