Back in 2013, Steve Yzerman told TSN’s Darren Dreger that he is not in favor of fighting in the NHL.

From MLive:

“Yes, I believe a player should get a game misconduct for fighting,” Yzerman told TSN.ca’s Darren Dreger. “We penalize and suspend players for making contact with the head while checking, in an effort to reduce head injuries, yet we still allow fighting.

“We’re stuck in the middle and need to decide what kind of sport do we want to be. Either anything goes and we accept the consequences, or take the next step and eliminate fighting.”

Yzerman’s comments were a result of an incident when Montreal’s George Parros was wheeled off the ice on a stretcher after slamming face-first into the ice during a fight with Toronto’s Coltin Orr.

Parros suffered a concussion.
