AHL Fight Leaves One Player Face-Down, Unconscious on the Ice (Video)

Brian McGrattan knockout

Even those who endorse fighting in hockey won’t enjoy watching this.

Last night, during an AHL contest between the San Diego Gulls and the San Antonio Rampage, former NHL enforcer and current Gulls forward Brian McGrattan dropped the gloves with the Rampage’s Daniel Maggio. Both combatants were throwing haymakers when suddenly Maggio connected with a hard right, which left an unconscious McGrattan face-down on the ice.

After being attended to by the medical staff, McGrattan had to be stretchered off the ice. It was later reported by the Gulls’ twitter account that he was “conscious, alert and has full movement.”

That’s great news, especially after watching this frightening incident unfold in the video below:
