The Carolina Hurricanes only tallied six fights during the 2016-17 season. You could make a case that they were on the losing end of every single one. Jordan Staal was the only player to drop the gloves more than once; and according to HockeyFights, this Hurricanes’ team fought less than any other Carolina team in franchise history.  Not ironically, they were the least penalized team in the league.

Thanks to the good people over at Hockey Fights, we get to enjoy the fisticuffs all over again.
