Dad won’t let daughter watch Avalanche-Blackhawks fight

A dad shields his daughter from the brawl. 

Sheldon Brookbank and Cody McLeod gave fans a close-up look at hockey fighting when they brawled along the boards during Wednesday’s Chicago BlackhawksColorado Avalanche game.

It was a little too close for one rinkside dad, though.

As Brookbank and MacLeod traded blows, television cameras caught one spectator — a Blackhawks fan who was in Denver, in fact — shielding his young daughter’s eyes from the brutality taking place in front of them.
