Video: Wild WHL goalie fight

One day after an American Hockey League brawl led to an epic center ice tilt between netminders Dustin Tokarski and Eddie Pasquale comes this video of another goaltender-enhanced donnybrook.

This one involved the Edmonton Oil Kings and Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League. The Oil Kings, a Memorial Cup favorite, had run up a 7-1 lead in the third period, creating the perfect storm for hockey hostilities. A cheap shot delivered by Lethbridge's Josh Derko on Edmonton's Curtis Lazar with just over two minutes remaining instigated a line brawl that quickly drew Laurent Brossoit and Ty Rimmer to the faceoff circle.

Brossoit, a highly regarded pick of the Calgary Flames, earns a slight edge in this one, but Rimmer (in red) gives a good account of himself.
