Epic brawl in minor-league hockey game

A Griffins-IceHogs brawl results in 192 penalty minutes and 13 ejections.

While the National Hockey League is back in full swing, a couple of American Hockey League teams were fully swinging at each other late last week.

A Jan. 19 brawl between the Grand Rapids Griffins (the Detroit Red Wings' AHL affiliate) and Rockford IceHogs ( Chicago Blackhawks) resulted in 192 penalty minutes and 13 ejections.

On Tuesday, the league handed down six suspensions. Two players — the Griffins' Louis-Marc Aubry and IceHogs' Rob Flick — received lengthy six-game suspensions for the fight, which took place midway through the second period of an 11-6 Griffins victory.

In a colorful twist, Rockford wore pink sweaters during the game for breast-cancer awareness.
