The Mississippi Surge and the Huntsville Havoc, both of the Southern Professional Hockey League, provided us with a brawl for the ages over the weekend.

The video is 3:53 long and I recommend that you sit tight and watch the whole thing because just when you think the players have had enough, they go back at it. The best part of the whole video is the play-by-play guy’s confusion.
