EK wins comfortably in his first fight as a pro!

Posted by SURESHOT27 on January 28, 2016 at 10:46 AM

does anyone even know how to fight these days? What a joke.

Some one needs to climb into the booth and pound the snot out of Potvin.

It was very interesting seeing Ekblad drop the gloves. He did well for his first NHL fight.

Aaron got in a few good shots and did pretty well for his first NHL fight! Not really sure what started it but when Holland came at him, Ekblad didn't hesitate to drop his gloves. Great job!

Holland does basically nothing and Ekblad does next to nothing. On that basis it's a win for Ekblad, but not something to list on his resume.

Ekblad does a little more than Holland, but not much damage was really done....I give it a 4

Posted by runitup on January 27, 2016 at 08:31 AM

it was a draw the take down at the end made it a draw

If Holland just wanted to hug, all he had to do was wait until after the game and call one of those 1-800 late night chatting numbers...not that I've doing that or anything...

Holland went for the death grip and then they trade punches in close. Narrow win for Ekblad and I wouldn't argue a Draw.

All of a sudden Holland believes he is a tough guy.Dream on young man!

Posted by boldbilly on January 27, 2016 at 06:36 AM

Ekblad wins because he was the only one throwing. Holland starts it and does nothing except look stupid here how can 11% here actually think this a draw! Well 11% when I posted with only 19 votes......which means 2 people c'mon which 2 come clean it's laughable unlike big Mike I would argue a draw here

Ekblad is a beast. Holland is trying to step up for his mates. Holland actually does well in this fight. Just the way the teach it in fighting school even 50 years ago. Against a guy you know you can't handle get in tight, keep your chin tucked and try to land just one punch...Holland probably achieved all that even though he was dominated by Ekblad. All Ekblad in a 4.

Ekblad looked like he sort of knew what he was doing there. Holland, ...not so much. Ekblad lands one right on the button, for those who weren't paying attention, ...or simply chose to ignore.

Posted by EK65 on January 27, 2016 at 12:23 PM

Yes Potvin, Peter Holland noted tough guy with 2 career NHL fights (both of which he didn't even drop his gloves in) was out there looking to target a "dance partner" in Ekblad Edge to Ekblad I don't miss Potvin at all...

Posted by Hagstrom on January 27, 2016 at 03:59 AM

Holland put the seatbelt on, goes for the take down, then throws a punch. Gj, dude. Win Ekblad.

Posted by Otto_maddux on January 27, 2016 at 08:29 PM

Ek got in a couple good ones, Holland with the tackle and cheap ground swat, win Ekblad.

Posted by DARCY T on February 01, 2016 at 09:54 AM

ekblad started it with gloved punch and they dropped gloves.both landed some punches and that's a draw but ekblad showed nice right hook/uppercut combination so i can see why so many voted for him in his 1st nhl fight

Posted by fightingiswrong on January 30, 2016 at 10:21 AM

In the post game interview, Holland said the he had really bad diarrhea and that Ekblad is lucky that he did not want to fight. So knowing that- I will still give the fight to Ekblad, but he had better think twice about a rematch. Next time, he might get his clock cleaned, or maybe even his block knocked off.

Posted by AxlRose91 on January 27, 2016 at 10:50 AM

Nothing going on here. Slight edge Holland

Posted by kkdowning on January 27, 2016 at 09:36 AM

That was a surprise -- that Ekblad fought and won.
