Textbook hugfest. If you see this comment before watching the video, don't waste your time & move on. Check out the 7.9 rated fight in the AHL with Tyler Randell from 3/5 instead.

Not much happening here. The boys were just wrestling a bit. Draw.

Too much hugging, not enough throwing. Should have been 2 minutes for roughing only.

Holy shit no wonder we got rid of Otter as he is horrible. Although that does not say much for DeToilet as we have all Euro wusses now. Sound guy should have played "Slow Dancin" while this was going on now that would have been funny! ZZZZzzzzzz!!

Just a wild guess...Ott will not make any Habs fan forget Nilan or Kordic anytime soon. A snoozer of a draw.

I am here to beg NHL referees to please incorporate double minors for roughing into their decision making process as they once did in the 80s and 90s. Until today's officials readopt this practice, hockeyfights.com is obligated to post videos such as this which only annoy the viewer. No one likes to be annoyed. This was not a fight. It was a semi-aggressive wrestling match that may or may not have included a punch or two that may or may not have landed. Majors were neither earned nor deserved. You know it, I know it, the refs know it and Ott knows it. I don't think Bartkowski knows it.

Draw & 2 Still weird seeing Ott in a habs jersey but, so extremely fitting.

Posted by lupien on March 10, 2017 at 06:23 AM

Ott got the better licks in. Surprise I guess.

Typical Steve Ott "fight". It's spelled c-r-a-p.

Posted by claire alexande on March 12, 2017 at 06:12 PM

I had heard rumours Steve Ott was employed by pacifist hockey franchises in eastern North America in an attempt to totally destroy the credibility of the notion of fighting as an adjunct to the great game of ice hockey. Rumours confirmed! Draw, 1 (lack of negative scoring option)...

Eww, and it's in French. All around doody.

Posted by bruins34 on March 11, 2017 at 07:21 PM

nonfight. I mean, what more is there to say.

Posted by boldbilly on March 10, 2017 at 03:29 AM

I'm actually going to give this one to Ott.....right at the end of this video as they replay and show how this joke or slow dance started you see Ott land 2 quick ones the rest is Bartkowski hugging and holding and not willing to engage..... I scored this a generous 2
