The Stanley Cup Qualifying round is officially underway along with the round robin.
Some wondered if there would be any intensity to these games with no fans and such a long lay off, but things are definitely building.
We've seen things get spicy in a couple of the matchups and it got really heated between the Vancouver Canucks and Minnesota Wild.
Late last night as the two were battling, Canucks' forward Michael Ferland got into a fight and then ended up attacking the Wild bench.
Ferland was skating by the Wild bench when he had his stick grabbed by a Wild player, Ferland made sure to get his stick back and then gave the Wild player a very solid spear in the stomach.
Lots are calling for a suspension.
If you leave the bench during a game to fight it can result in a 10 game suspension, what about when you attack people on the bench?
Check out the play below, do you think he should be suspended?
Does Vancouver Michael Ferland deserve supplemental discipline for the “Spear” you will see in this video ? pic.twitter.com/61ByyEULUO
