Florida Panthers Prospect Will Miss Start of Season After Breaking Hand Punching Opponent in Head

Jayce Hawryluk was selected by the Florida Panthers with the 32nd pick in the 2014 NHL Early Entry Draft. Hawryluk was going to have a shot at being on the Panthers roster when the season opens in less than a month, but that’s unlikely now because he broke his hand punching somebody in the head.

For legal purposes, it’s good to know that he was punching a willing participant, but what was the point of this? Hockey fights remain dumb and hockey fights in exhibitions remain even dumber.
