Anyone who’s seen Milan Lucic play knows the kind of game he likes to play; he’s chippy, he gets under your skin, and when he’s frustrated he takes more than his fair share of cheap shots. A lot of players around the league just deal with it, because that’s the state of the NHL these days on some nights. But three years ago, Dalton Prout decided he wasn’t going to deal with it.
ROUND THREE! Milan Lucic fights Dalton Prout [VIDEO]
There’s a bit of a “fight history” to this story, so let’s start from the beginning.
November 30, 2013. After a scuffle in front of the net, then-Columbus Blue Jacket Dalton Prout and former Boston Bruin Milan Lucic have their first bout. It’s an innocent enough fight, as much as a fight can be, and the two take their majors and move on.
Fast forward a year later to November 21, 2014, and we have the start of a slight fighting rivalry. After jawing and some pushing and shoving, Lucic and Prout look as if they’re going to throw hands again. It ends with Prout dropping Lucic with one punch and Lucic crying through the officials holding the two apart. It was not considered a fight, as the two received offsetting roughing minors, but it painted a bit of foreshadowing for the two players’ next meeting.
