Kyle Clifford, known as an enforcer in the NHL, demonstrated he hasn't mellowed with his transition to the AHL. In a recent game between the Marlies and the Thunderbirds, Clifford's temper was put on full display when Joseph Duszak celebrated his goal with taunts at the Marlies' bench.

Clifford's Reaction to Duszak's Taunts

After scoring against his former team, Duszak took the celebration a step too far for Clifford's liking, with taunts that didn't sit well with the Marlies. Clifford, taking personal offence to Duszak's actions, decided to address the issue on the ice.
«Kyle Clifford immediately goes after Joseph Duszak off the puck drop following his goal against the #Marlies.«

At the next opportunity, Clifford targeted Duszak, attempting to start a fight in retaliation. Duszak's response was to avoid confrontation, leading to a situation where Clifford's anger was evident but did not escalate into a full fight.

The Backstory: Duszak's Rocky History with the Marlies

The tension between Duszak and the Marlies traces back to unresolved issues from his time with the team. Reports suggest Duszak felt underutilized and unhappy with his role, leading to his departure from the team, leaving on bad terms.
«There's a rough history between Duszak and the Marlies.

The Marlies lost the last game of 21-22 and as a result missed the playoffs. Duszak didn't play. There was talk about him being upset about playing 4RW rather than D. Crocker says here he straight up bailed on the team»

The history adds layers to the fight, suggesting it was not merely about the taunting but also carried the weight of Clifford's time with the team.
