Whoa, watch these KHL coaches fight


If you were wondering what former NHL goalie* Peter Skudra has been up to, you probably didn’t expect the answer to be “He’s a KHL coach who fought another KHL coach.”

That unlikely scene took place at a KHL pre-season game, as Puck Daddy’s Sean Leahy passes along word that Skudra (coaching Torpedo Nizhny) got into a scuffle with Yevgeni Popikhin (HC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk) midway through a Saturday game.

The KHL tends to generate some odd moments compared to the more buttoned-down NHL, but this is something else.

It’s a sight to behold:

Leahy also unearthed video of the fight from this angle.

* – You’d most likely remember him from his Pittsburgh Penguins or Vancouver Canucks days.
