MUST SEE | Player lays a kick on a downed opponent during a bench brawl in a youth game

Fighting in youth hockey is becoming a problem. While it does happen, it's not very often and it's even more rare to see two entire teams go at it.

During a youth hockey game in Russia recently, two entire teams started shoving and throwing punches at what looked like the end of the game. The context behind the video below is unclear but it appears that a player on the white team skated over to the black team and started chirping the players before getting shoved, which led to a brawl.

In that brawl, a player on the white team got pushed to the ice and when he gets back up, he skates back over and kicks a player on the black team while he was down on the ice. Keep an eye on number 27 on the white team around the 16-17 second mark in the video below.




The only ones on each team that didn't participate in the brawl, who stood beside each other and watched on, even given each other a fist bump.



Eventually things would settle down after the officials and coaches separated the players. There's no doubt that there will be discipline for some of the players involved, including the ones who initiated the brawl, as well as number 27 on white for kicking an opposing player.
