Fighting Goaltenders

On Thursday night, Goaltender Mike Smith of the Tampa Bay Lightning got in a scrap with Forward Aaron Voros of the New York Rangers. Thanks to the good folks over at, we have some entertaining video. Watch as the brilliant Voros punches Smith in the goalie mask with a bare fist.

So this gem reminded us of some of the classic goalie fights in recent hockey memory. There is just something about goaltenders getting into a fight that we find to be one of the most entertaining things in sports. As a Capitals fan, I fondly recall the memory of Olaf Kolzig fighting against his buddy and former teammate (and best man from his wedding) Byron Dafoe of the Boston Bruins:

Here are some additional Goalie Fights that are sure to entertain. Let us know if we have missed any of your favorites and we will add them to this post.
