Talk about swinging from the hip... my god. In the thumbnail he looks like that one Jeff Dunham puppet.

In his first NHL fight, Hayden takes on a tough customer And the college kid lands a punch out of nowhere Threw that one from the cheap seats... Hopefully Hayden can develop into something nasty

Great Tussle. Will be one of the best this season.

Posted by SilverSliver on October 24, 2017 at 06:40 PM

I'm a Wild homer and Foligno was winning until that hit at the end. Any doubts were washed away by the fact that the hit knocked Foligno out for a couple weeks to get facial surgery.

Posted by berkja on October 17, 2017 at 06:22 AM

Hayden knocked him the fuck out!

Posted by von_swine on October 13, 2017 at 03:32 AM

when the knees buckle, you're takin' a L.... nice connect from the kid to waffle the ever-studly Foligno descendent in a 'no-quarter' tilt... #40 FTW

Posted by BennyD on October 13, 2017 at 03:57 PM

Pretty spirited tussle, Hayden with the obvious W. Gave it a 7 based on entertainment value.

Posted by tville23 on October 15, 2017 at 12:39 PM

Draw? Foligno win? The linesmen stepped in because Foligno had clearly lost! Never understand some of the voting on this site.

Posted by ethanmay4 on October 12, 2017 at 10:36 PM

Haymaker for the match

Posted by canamrugby on October 13, 2017 at 10:22 AM

Unfortunately for Foligno he gets caught with one lucky haymaker.

Posted by Great Murray on October 13, 2017 at 07:39 AM

Foligno was on his was to a win unit he caught a short right jab and then a bomb of an overhand right...TKO! Hayden 6

Posted by sedge47 on October 12, 2017 at 10:40 PM

This was objectively a terrible idea from Hayden, but he hangs tough, takes some hard shots and gets his reward with an admittedly fairly wild haymaker. Not bad for a rookie.

Posted by John5676 on October 15, 2017 at 12:31 PM

Close fight, but one good punch by Hayden gave him the win.

Posted by CBJ_93 on December 07, 2017 at 12:36 PM

Foligno had every punch other than a few jabs from Hayden from the collar. Hayden gets the win though with the punch that drops Foligno down to the knee.

Posted by Patman on October 12, 2017 at 10:46 PM

Hayden with the Hail Mary full of face, for the win...

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on October 13, 2017 at 03:47 AM

Foligno looked like he had things pretty well handled until Hayden landed that big right to end things.

Posted by Lucic_Power on October 13, 2017 at 10:40 PM

Nick would beat his ass but whatever. I want a Peluso call up from Washington next time they play the Pens. He always fucks Reaves up.

Posted by NahDude on October 12, 2017 at 11:02 PM

Good scrap. Hayden with the bomb for the edge

Posted by Keddyporter3010 on October 13, 2017 at 02:04 PM

It wasn't the best but Hayden did well to protect himself until he could get a hand free and also utilized his left jab as well. He won the fight even if you take away the big haymaker, but that was the icing on the cake.

Posted by lilTootoo on October 15, 2017 at 01:24 PM

Hayden would've destroyed foligs on a 2nd punch there had the ref not stepped in, good stoppage.

Posted by Strockadoldini on October 14, 2017 at 03:31 PM

John Haydens First fight is a win against Wilds tough guy Foligno. Ending it with a big right hand that makes his knees weak. Good Fight.

Posted by PankyCHI on May 03, 2018 at 10:31 AM

Definitely a win for Hayden. Foligno suffered a broken bone in his face from the haymaker at the end. Also, I checked. I see many comments saying this is Hayden's first fight. He had a fight in preseason. So this would be his first Regular Season NHL fight but not his first NHL fight.

Posted by falcospaverius on April 04, 2020 at 02:38 PM

Ka- POW!

Posted by Notsince15 on April 04, 2020 at 02:38 PM

Hayden drops a pretty tough customer with a huge punch. Won this fight easily.

Posted by rocky 1 on December 28, 2017 at 01:59 PM

I,ll call it a draw but one last shot by Hayden may win it!

Posted by wallysy1 on October 31, 2017 at 12:31 AM

No where near as lopsided as the votes tell you.

Posted by Jaxdave on October 14, 2017 at 08:44 AM

Ferlund dominating until he got caught on the side of the head with a haymarker.

Posted by jbbrok on October 13, 2017 at 01:05 PM

Foligno got domed

Posted by Behn Wilson on October 14, 2017 at 04:20 PM

Well then... I don't who's more surprised... myself or Folgno I'll let Daysofcoleco's brilliant "Folignoian" inner voice soliloquy take it from there Lol @EK65

Posted by DARCY T on November 21, 2017 at 06:31 PM

wow, i didnt know chicago employs a fighter.an unusual thing...hayden's 1st nhl fight in regular season and a good one.it was a close fight with no real punches landed until that haymaker and he broke foligno's cheekbone with that right haymaker and foligno's got solid reputation as a fighter.good start in nhl for 22 years old hayden...tko and gave it a 6

Posted by Humper on October 13, 2017 at 10:17 AM

Good fight all around. As usual Foligno puts forth a strong effort but Hayden's haymaker is the deciding factor.

Posted by heald99 on October 24, 2017 at 12:29 PM

Great comeback

Posted by UnrealFlow on October 13, 2017 at 09:16 PM

Foligno was too focused on throwing the helmet, and got popped.

Posted by hoosiers098 on October 13, 2017 at 04:49 AM

John "Haymaker" Hayden

Posted by diesel_3 on October 18, 2017 at 03:53 PM

I'm probably not alone when I googled 'John Hayden' after this bout. Kid out of Chicago wins with a buckling right we like to call the 'Hometown Haymaker' Marcus Foligno's adrenaline made him bounce right back up after a quick knee wobble, but you could tell he was seeing stars after that one! WHAMMY!

Posted by hilldog on October 13, 2017 at 12:31 PM

Hayden pulled it out of the fire with the haymaker at the end of the fight.

Posted by Imarabhata on October 13, 2017 at 08:44 PM

Started that punch from his ankle. Real Good fight

Posted by Bigtimbrr on October 13, 2017 at 12:29 PM

Boom...protect the chin the grasshopper learned.

Posted by travist on October 19, 2017 at 01:56 PM

going draw, you cannot discount all the damage foligno did before that one big punch from hayden...but boy was that a nice shot.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on October 13, 2017 at 08:47 AM

Foligno's a pretty rough customer, and he was giving Hayden all he could handle, until, somehow, the kid swung from the nosebleeds to drop him to his knees and take the comeback TKO, and he looked as surprised as anyone that he was able to. Good shit from both guys.

Posted by chris72gross on October 14, 2017 at 01:17 AM

Foligno had a big one waiting for Hayden, but Hayden beat him to the punch; and a good one it was! Funny how Hayden is turning away from Foligno's punch as he lands first. Check it out in super slow motion.

Posted by Mounty in NC on October 13, 2017 at 10:55 AM

All Foligno until the TKO by Hayden.... Hayden and 6

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on October 12, 2017 at 10:36 PM

I think myself, Foligno & Hayden have something in common: none of us saw it ending like that! Giving the nod to Hayden here with a borderline TKO (struggling to check the box though). Was more or less getting owned before the Hail Mary swing.

Posted by Daysofcoleco on October 13, 2017 at 05:50 PM

This should be easy - I'm in complete control of this scrap - Sweater Jab? Ow! Christ that hurt. Like brass knuckles. Who gets that much pop out of a sweater jab? OK I've got his helmet off - here we go - Marcus is Back! I'm going to pretend to do my hair - WTF!?

Posted by demonhead6 on October 14, 2017 at 12:15 PM

Foligno had him till' he got caught with that wild lucky right landed. had his eyes closed when he through it. Good fight though.

Posted by Willywagtail on October 12, 2017 at 10:48 PM

Draw. Good haymaker from Hayden

Posted by Bear_VS_Shark on October 13, 2017 at 03:45 AM

One punch from Hayden made all the difference

Posted by wyohawks on October 12, 2017 at 11:17 PM

Props to Hayden for turning that around. He definitely started out in a hole, but he hung in there and won in.

Posted by bigmike53 on October 26, 2017 at 10:40 PM

Foligno was up on points until he gets lambasted with a bomb from Hayden! KD win for Hurricane Hayden.
