The KHL is known for being one of the top hockey leagues in the world. Earlier this week chaos broke out near the end of the first period between HK Sochi and Kunlun Red Star.

The fight began when a forward Devin Brosseau from Kunlun came in too fast and ran HK Sochi goaltender Mikhail Berdin. Berdin a former prospect in the Winnipeg Jets system did not take kindly to the hit and attacked Brosseau.

The Aftermath

After the insane fight between the two penalties were handed down on both sides. The penalties handed out to each side would go on to be discussed amongst fans in a controversial way.

Brosseau was given a two-minute minor for interference and then of course five minutes for fighting. Berdin on the other hand got two minutes for instigating, a five-minute major for fighting, and a ten-minute misconduct.

Berdin was protecting himself after being run by another reckless player. His extra ten-minute misconduct has been viewed as harsh by some fans around the world.

No suspensions were handed out however so life will go on as normal for both players and clubs. Now Berdin and Brosseau will have a fun story to tell after they decide to hang up their skates someday.
