The Break Down
Not sure exactly what brought this fight about. Joel Edmundson and Josh Manson can just be seen at the 0:12 - 0:14 mark of the video verbally jarring a bit. Then the camera pans away until the announcers notice the fight and we are squared off and ready to go.
Both guys are unwilling to give up the first clench. Edmundson stops Manson's first attempt and gets a hold of Manson's arm/wrist protector. After that disengages, the two begin to circle again. Manson looks to try and throw a punch and Edmundson seeing that closes and tries to block the attempt. Manson throws the first right, hitting Edmundson's name bar. Edmundson comes back with his own right that turns into a grab at Manson's helmet. Edmundson then tries to grab the visor with his left hand as the two close in and lock up more. A couple of seconds of hand re-positioning later, Edmundson gets his left hand free again and grabs at the visor. Manson throws a punch and Edmundson throws two back. Manson throws another catching all back. They tie up again before Edmundson's right get released and he lands two on Manson's front. Manson does his best to evade, throwing a right of his own before trying an uppercut as Edmundson goes to one knee. They tie up and Manson throws a couple of quick lefts before Edmundson connects with a right that has Manson tucking his head and the linesmen pounce on that tuck.

Manson not Mason ! With the win👊
Looked like Manson's uppercuts (towards the end of the scrap) rocked Edmundson and did the most damage. Narrow win - Manson.
A rare decent tilt these days. Missing the days of his dad
Edmundson got more than a few at the start of the fight, Manson only connected on a couple. Win for Edmundson
so girls in a school toilet fight, but not NHL fighters. Shame !!!
A lot of punches attempted. Not as many landed. Spirited and angry draw & 5
Draw all the way ..... and the announcers saying Dave Manson was one of the most feared ever .... what????
It would be draw but Manson landen the best two hits and that's why I choose him as a pretty close winner
Great fight! Edmundson with the win with the right hook to the noggin at the end.
Edmundson answered for the hard, yet ckean hit on Huala. From various angles, it appeared Manson did not connect cery much and ended the bout with his head on the linesmans shoulder and a little blood on his face. Edmundson definitely connected on a few hard hits.
Some good dance moves to get everyone in the groove and then some spirited fisticuffs!
Joel gets the nod
Pretty decent fight, so called it a draw. Visors really suck (for fighting at least).
Both guys never landed many punches split decision for Edmundson... Mason is lucky Edmundson never got set up...Mason would of been hurt..
edmundson won this; manson skated away with his face all cut up and bleeding too
Good fight. Damn limesman
More wrestling than punching. Both landed good shots when they "did" throw some. Draw.
Kudos to Edmundson for standing up for teammate.
Draw, zebras in way to early to pick a winner
Decision to Son of Mad dog Manson.
Neither guy can fight
All Mansons are tough customers. Good fight Draw.
is this the WNHL?? A couple of drunken polesmokers in a sissy fight...they both lost.
At first I said Manson but after watching the replay I'm going with a draw and a 6
Manson looked timid like it was his first fight..He did good but held the L in this one...Next time I bet he shines...On the flip side Edmundson looked a little stronger with the dodging of punches...Suggest next time if you wanna fight take off your face shield so it doesn’t fog up and u gotta learn to duck you face at the time of punches to destroy your opponent’s hands...Overall good fight
