Hockey Goalie and Ref Try To Leave Ice During Game To Join Fight Involving Their Father

This has got to be one of the wildest things you will ever see during a hockey game. Check out the surreal video of a pair of brothers (one goalie and one a ref) see their father get into a brawl in the stands and then try to join the skirmish. This Netherlands hockey league seems like one I would not want to be a part of.

Puck Daddy has the details:

It was a March 16 Larry van Wieren Cup playoff game between the Geleen Smoke Eaters and Eindhoven in Eredivisie, the only pro ice hockey league in the country organized by the Dutch Ice Hockey Federation (NIJB). There was an altercation in the stands between a group of fans and a 17-year-old youth player, seated with his mother and father.

The father stepped in and was soon jumped by two men, one of whom put him in a choke hold on the bleachers. As the father stood up, another man shoved him off the stands onto the concrete floor near the rink boards.

And that is when the sons did their best to protect their father which you can see quite clearly from the above video.
