Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Volpatti — 1/16/11

While we wont knock Aaron Volpatti of the Vancouver Canucks for dropping the gloves with Brad Staubitz of the Minnesota Wild during yesterday’s game at the Xcel Energy Center, we will say that perhaps the 25-year-old forward bit off a little more than he could chew in what was only his second career NHL fight (not including pre-season).

Midway through the first period these two combatants decided to get the party started behind the Wild net.  However, it would not be long before a flurry of Staubitz punches sent Volpatti to the ground, giving his team the momentum on route to a 4-0 victory, and earning a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, January 16, 2011 in the process.
