Greatest Bench Brawl Ever in International Competition

It’s the off-season so to keep you entertained we thought we’d showcase one of the greatest bench clearing brawls in the history of hockey. This was in the 1987 World Juniors in a match between Canada and the U.S.S.R. The “Punch-up in Piestany” erupted halfway through the final game of the 1987 world junior hockey championship in Czechoslovakia. Canada was already assured a medal, but that didn’t stop them from throwing down in this one.
