There might not be a whole lot of fight-only enforcers out there, but that doesn’t mean the NHL lacks tough guys. Sometimes we get a reminder in the form of a gnarly fight.
Ryan White of the Philadelphia Flyers provided the latest reminder on Thursday night, as one would assume he broke New York Islanders’ forward Matt Martin’s nose in this bout:
The two fought before almost three years ago, according to Hockey Fights. That was Martin’s eighth fight of 2014-15 while it was White’s first at the NHL level (he also had one in the AHL).
Martin was out to play in the second period despite that broken nose.
