Enforcer? Jarome Iginla doesn’t need no stinkin’ enforcer.
The veteran winger, who signed with the Boston Bruins in the off-season, is one of those rare star players who doesn’t need protection. He can throw down just fine, as evidenced by Thursday night’s scrap with Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Radko Gudas.
Iginla picked his own fight after getting clobbered (cleanly) by Gudas as opposed to the Bolts blueliner getting harassed by a B’s goon. Iginla was just straight-up jacked to fight, although he probably also wanted to make a good first impression with the home crowd.
Both players also wear a visor and kept their helmets on.
The Bruins won the game 3-1.
