College hockey melee features goalie-player fight

NCAA players wrestle.

This brouhaha between the Minnesota State Mavericks and Ferris State Bulldogs won’t go down as the greatest line brawl ever. Or of this year. Or of this month.

But it’s entertaining nonetheless.

There weren’t many punches thrown this past Saturday, which probably says more about the NCAA’s anti-fighting stance than anything.

However, there is a brief goalie-player fight, and another dance featuring Zach Stepan, a Nashville fourth-rounder attending Minnesota State who is cousins with New York Rangers forward Derek Stepan.

A total of 160 penalty minutes — 90 to Ferris State and 70 Minnesota State — were assessed at 8:15 of the third period. And, according to the announcer, “stuff” was thrown onto the ice during the incident.

Surprisingly, the pre-melee score was 4-2 for the Mavericks – not exactly a blowout. They won 4-3.
