It’s not often that you find two skilled skaters demonstrating this side of the game, but during Tuesday’s contest between the Nashville Predators and Vegas Golden Knights, two stars dropped their gloves.
Forward Mark Stone for Vegas and defenceman Roman Josi of the visiting Predators went back and forth with some tussling before things ended quickly when the Golden Knights player landed a single punch.

A brief exchange of words beforehand led to this result, with Nashville down by a single goal. Luckily, Josi was able to skate away from the brawl (relatively) unscathed.
Although these two are inexperienced when it comes to throwing punches, Stone found a way to end the bout quickly and keep the opposition from any resulting harm.
Through his first six games of the season, the Vegas forward has scored four goals and nine points, leading his team in scoring. On the other end, Josi has been able to score two goals and five points in five games.
