When you are the best fighter in the National Hockey League (NHL), then other players will attempt to dethrone him. Take for example tonight’s game between the Nashville Predators and the Anaheim Ducks. Ducks enforcer Nick Deslauriers is a guy that should not be messed with.
However, Predators Austin Watson was ready to go. As soon as the opening puck dropped at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA, they both dropped gloves. In this fight, you see why Deslauriers is the best fighter in hockey right now. He throws a jab in order to close the distance with Watson. Once the jab closed the distance, Deslauriers was able to grab Watson’s jersey with his left hand. Then, Deslauriers was able to throw multiple right hands at Watson’s face. At the very least, Watson secured the takedown in order to stem the beating that he was taking.
