Goalie Knocked Out Cold in ECHL Fight
The ECHL is an intriguing league that falls somewhere between the SPHL and AHL in terms of skill level. Due to this, there are numerous intense fights, even though the skill level is not as refined as in the AHL or NHL.
During a match-up between the Fort Wayne Komets and the Wheeling Nailers, goalies Ryan Fanti and Brad Barone engaged in a heated brawl right at the center of the rink.
Ryan Fanti, who is presently under an NHL contract with the Edmonton Oilers, completely dominated his opponent in the fight, leaving him unconscious.
Although he might not make it to the NHL, he will definitely become one of the scariest goalies in the minor leagues.
