Probert Updates – “Tough Guy” and fight catalog

| nationdan

This week was one full of exciting news for everyone around the Hockeyfights team, and fandom alike. It started with a late night announcement from the “Tough Guy: The Bob Probert story” documentary team announcing that fans all over the world would be able to access the documentary, previous with a few select limited releases, through multiple new channels.

This announcement got us here over-the-moon excited and as promised when we released the new site layout, we were able to take some real time to continue to update the Probert fight catalog that so deserves it.
