Here's Video of a Vicious Hockey Knockout In a Canadian Junior League

This fight took place in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The combatants are Rimouski Oceanic’s Samuel Morin and Kurt Etchegary of the Québec Remparts. Morin is 16-year-old and stands 6-foot-5. Etchegary is 17 and a shade under 6-feet tall. If that sounds like a mismatch, it was. Morin drops Etchegary with one of the most brutal knockouts you’ll ever see in a hockey fight. Etchegary is tended to by the training staff before being helped off the ice by two teammates. Etchegary suffered a concussion.

Ramparts coach and general manager and NHL Hall of Famer, Patrick Roy, said that this should have been avoided. In an article from L’Vantage makes a case against fighting in junior hockey. Roy said that you can’t try to eliminate blows to the head while still allowing fighting.

You may remember a couple years ago when Roy’s son, Jonathan was charged with assault following a hockey fight that saw him attack an unwilling opponent.
