Discussing the hockey players of yesterday. In today’s game where the role of enforcer is extinct these are stories from players who lived the role. Along with other hockey fight fans!
Episode 60: Are You Happy NHL?
Enforcers are gone from the NHL and it shows more than ever. Slew foots, biting, and much more go on now that the on ice consequence is no longer around. The NHL made its bed and now it gets to sleep in it. Also I announce the Five For Fighting Podcasts recent signing with Six Pack Coverage!

Episode 59: Nico Blachman
I sat down with Florida Everblades rookie Nico Blachman to discuss coming through the ranks as a fighter. Nico knows his role and loves every second of fighting. He will do whatever it takes to get the boys going and change a games tide. We also talk how fight rules can actually hurt the game, along with cheap play in college hockey despite what other folks may say. Sit down and enjoy some talk with a young gunslinger
Episode 58: Fines and Suspensions Don't Work
In this episode I cover how PK Subban is at it again with no repercussion. Fights in hockey that have turned the tide of a game. Along with the cliff notes version of how fighting has changed since John Ferguson. Crack a beer with me, and enjoy.
Episode 57: NHL vs ECHL
I dive into the differences between ECHL & NHL and how much better the ECHL is. Tom Wilson and Cernak shenanigans from the other night, and the eyerolling social media ran by NHL teams.
Episode 56: Everblades Tough Guys, Rob Ray, and More!
Bringing everyone up to speed on where I have been but more importantly some tough hockey talk! Everblades tough guys and opening night fight, the weak suspension for Larkin after punching Joseph, and a case for Rob Ray as one of the best power punchers in the NHL.
Episode 55: John Searson, Minor League Mayhem, and LNAH Nostalgia
Myself and our friend across the pond John Searson went live to breakdown 4th Line Voice's Minor League Mayhem bracket. Along with discussing LNAH fights and of course some gripes about the game today, it wouldn't be a FFF show without some cloud yelling. Crack a drink with us and enjoy some hockey fight talk!
Great interviews. Definitely gives respect to the hockey warriors of past and present.
