Florida Panthers forward Reilly Smith has quietly enjoyed a strong season, and he reached a first on Monday.
According to Hockey Fights’ listings, Smith experienced his first NHL fight as he dropped the gloves with New York Islanders forward Anders Lee. (Lee isn’t a particularly common combatant, either, at least not yet in his career.)
You can watch that fight in the video above.
Smith was tagged with 17 penalty minutes in this game. Lee and the Islanders got the last laugh via a stunning 3-2 comeback, which you can read more about here.
