Hockey Fight Injuries This Season

I'm doing a persuasive speech on why fighting is an integral part of the game and I need some help recalling any relatively serious injuries from fighting this season in the NHL. I can remember:

Koci's broken nose (vs. Belak and Chara)
Mark Bell's facial fractures (vs. Malone)
Carcillo's leg injury (vs. Roenick and friends)

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

OKT- concussion from weller.
Didnt Gratton hurt Winchester at the beginning of the year?
Dubinsky was banged up for 4 or 5 games after getting TKO'ed by Richardson.

First thing that came to my mind as well - he seperated that in a fight against Byron Ritchie of the Canucks when they fell awkwardly to the ice, very early into the season. It was the start of a brutal, injury-marred season for Souray. Jeff Cowan was out for over a month after suffering a hip flexor injury during a wrestling match with Zack Stortini. He never really got back on track from that either and had a brutal season.

Carcillo and Wishniewski (sp) of the Hawks sprained their knees in a couple freak accidents in their scraps.

But really, there weren't a lot of serious injuries sustained in fights this season, at least not compared to last year. Sure, there were a few splattered noses and a couple of broken orbital bones, but there wasn't any real scary, ugly KO's like we saw last year with Fedoruk and Newbury.

There were barely any injuries that resulted from actually getting punched in a fight this year. The only ones I remember were with Bell breaking his orbital and Koci's nose explosion. Breaking your nose isn't really too serious though. Hell, Koci fought Chara with his broken nose.
