Goaltenders drop their gloves at center ice during a professional hockey game

How often do you get to see two goaltenders battling it out in center ice?

There really is no such thing as two goaltenders rushing onto the ice to fight near the red line. We got a taste of that on Saturday.

In the Federal Prospects Hockey League, a low-level professional league based in the Eastern and Midwestern United States, during a blowout between the Columbus River Dragons and Port Huron Prowlers, the two opposing goaltenders were able to let go of the gloves in the middle of a row fight.

River Dragons goaltender Bailey MacBurnie and Richard Shipman of the Prowlers wholeheartedly agreed to take part in the ensuing team-wide fight at center ice. Although MacBurnie was the challenger – according to the play-by-play commentator – he received a final blow and ended up being the first goalie to hit the ice.

During that entire second-period brawl, there were a total of five game misconduct penalties, six fight majors, a brutal double minor, a minor unsportsmanlike conduct and a sharp minor penalty. Both goaltenders received penalties for fighting and game misconduct.

The River Dragons ended up taking this game 10-0, so maybe Shipman just wanted to vent some frustration for allowing so many goals.
