First NHL game ever, and Frederic looks like Shawn Thornton in his prime. Loved how willing he was to ice the mitts when someone tries to push him around (hard to do given his size too).
Awesome fight, a first game to remember! All Freddy all fight.
Fun to watch. Frederic gets a win and his Dad gets won hell of a great memory. Tanev actually landed the best punch in this one but not nearly enough to change the result. I wonder if there will be a Tom Wilson in Frederic's future...not that would be fun to watch.
Good too see the new kid for the B’s not shy away from a challenge. Even better, it was a one sided beating in his first “ fight win “ in his first game. I also thought it was cool to see his parents cheering him on and having a great time.
Always fun to see the guy who started the whole thing get pummeled. This was a lopsided as they come. Welcome to Boston!
Ok, so where is Frederic now?, not even listed on the roster ,my guess that he won't play 100 games in the NHL. He did win the fight but missed most attempted punches,Jack Edwards needs to retire!! he and his boyfriend Brickley are the worst ( this coming from a long time Bruins fan), my point here is don't get too excited about Frederic as I don't expect we will be seeing much of him
Wow welcome to the NHL
I am betting that Tanev would decide to not challenge Frederic, if he had that to do all over again. I doubt Frederic is going to be Mike Tyson on skates, but he was ready for this one!
Kitcarnut, its great to support your team but don't make a complete ass of yourself by lying. We all saw the same fight. Man-up! Your boy got his ass kicked by a rookie!
Good first fight for Frederic, but Tanev not exactly a brawler. Let's see if Mom and Dad attempt a high five after Frederic drops 'em with someone who knows how to fight
Tanev thought he could boost his team by taking on a lightweight. Came back to bite him on the ass b
This was all Frederic and the announcer blew his load. Sad part is, even though total domination, Frederic missed most of his punches. Gave it a 6
Tanev should have let that giant goober Myers handle it. Instead he stuck his nose in there and got his shit packed by a kid.
That is what you get for picking on a rookie. Tanev is a pussy and he got fucked like one. Hahaha
Frederic with the win - its a 5
Great fight for his first NHL game, and his parents' reaction is better than any first NHL goal parent reaction I've ever seen
Hahahahahaha! Tanev? Really? You 5 should lose your voting privileges.
Great to see the rookie Frederic stand up for himself
Nice bout for his first NHL game
Trent beat the sh*t out that that little turd Brandon Tanev.
Nice little scrap for the rookie out of Wisconsin, good moment to pick a fight to really amp up the team and crowd.
Why Tanev lower his head. If you're going to drag a guy out of a clutch with another, best be ready to face the music. He grabs Frederic and then bops his head down and swings blindly. Ugh, I hate that. Anyway, Frederic bested him, but didn't connect on a lot of those blasts. Good enough for the win. Interesting to see Frederic father in the stands just stoked his kid was brawling away. Sadly, as a Bs fan, we also have to deal with Jack Edwards for our play-by-play. Believe you me folks even I gag at how blindly bias he is. I know, I know, a caller should be, to a certain extent, but Edwards has done nothing for years but talk like Bs dont lose fights or commit penalties. Wish they'd repalce the guy to be honest.
First of all, I couldn't log on after the site renovation. Waited and waited for them to fix it. Finally just had to re-register. Lucky I could use the same username! Anyhoo, on to the fight. Clear win by the rookie. And Chris' smaller brother started the fight too. Bad decision because he was fed a steady diet of knuckles. The parents' reaction bothered me. I know it was their boy's first game, and the adrenaline was going, and all that. And it was a good scrap too. But all that high-fiving and whooping it up, to me, seemed a bit much. Save it for his first goal, I would say. The guy who was getting beat up was someone else's son. I wonder how they would've liked it if the situation was reversed.
First fight in NHL and wins fight!! Two votes for Tanev? Must have been watching in braille!!
Frederic was strong for this being his first game. Willing and capable ready to go. Good on ya Trent dominate
Tanev was tuning the kid up when he stepped on a stick. Lucky for Frederico the gay Bruin.Now back to the minors Pussy Boy. Jets win!!!!!! Jets Win!!!!! Jets Win!!!!!!!!!
Welcome to Boston!
I read a few comments that Tanev was tuning the kid up when ??? Frederic start to quick finish total domination
Welcome to the NHL
Trent Frederic with the beat down. Anyone who votes for Brandon has no hockey IQ. JMHO...
Frederic did a good job of throwing 'em, and dominated this fight. How the Hell did anyone vote for Tanev?
rag doll comes to mind here. with Tanev's size you would think he could skate better, with his head up and not get clocked carrying the puck head down...
Welcome to Boston Freddy! I think this kid is going to fit in pefectly with the black & gold brigade
Whoever voted tanev... lost all credibility on this site... and for the guy who said Frederics parents shouldn't cheer for his son after that great scrap... should go watch soccer then!!! This is hockey!!!
Ladies, This fight is no where near a 7! Maybe the long all star break and cold weather is bringing a case of cabin fever? Jack Edwards. What to say. Jack Edwards...
Masshole rookie wants to engratiate himself swings wildly at Tanev. Wins fight but mostly throws misses. Massholes rejoice that they are the salt of the earth and file out to suck off Tom Brady because they are blind to his cheating. Just like their hockey team.
Trent Frederic absolutely pounded Branded Tanev in the most lopsided fight I've seen in many years! Halfway through the fight you could see that Tanev already had one eye shut and that was before taking several more blows. It's not like it was a hug fest either -- Tanev threw and Frederic let him, but Tanev couldn't land a punch where Frederic landed haymaker after haymaker. Tanev is going to think before he drops the gloves again! And hockeyfights needs to show who voted, because the currently 3 people who voted for Brandon Tanev deserve to be publicly shamed for their stupidity -- and it's not like they would even have to worry about hurt feelings, because they're too stupid to realize it anyway.
If Tanev's grill hadn't already been rattled by Miller's open ice check, Frederic definitely finished off the job.
How the hell can anyone pick Tanev as the winner? Kudos to Frederic for a solid showing and a willingness to drop 'em.
When was tanev running him up? When did tanev fall from the stick. Stick wasn't even close. Friggin idiots. Clear win for Frederic. No contest. Have it a 6. Definitely not a 7 by any means.
Tanev bit off more than he could chew. All Frederic with four thumbs up from his parents!
Tanev sought out the first game rookie Frederick as an easy mark because he was too pussy to go with Miller for a hard check earlier. Obviously he missed the scouting report that said Frederick has no problem dropping the gloves. He got beat like a red headed stepchild. As for his father cheering, He knows one of the keys for his son getting his foot in the NHL door is having grit and an edge. He was never projected to be a top line player and at best he was projected a 2nd line ceiling over time. He saw his son doing what he needed to do to make the show. He saw his son win and make it a step closer to playing full time in the NHL . The B’s drafted him for his size and grit and willingness to get dirty. If you voted for Tanev you are a fucktard. As for the person that whined about Tanev being another persons son, Tanev looked for it, he just got the bear
