Havoc and Ice Bears Rumble 3-11-17 – It’s safe to say that the Huntsville Havoc and Knoxville Ice Bears do not care for one another after a brutal game that featured over 30 penalties adding up to 207 mins. 15 years ago that wouldn’t be uncommon but these days even for the SPHL that’s a lot of PIMS. In this video you can see things get pretty rough right from the get go and then ends up with a wicked goalie fight between Brian Billett and Vernon’s Tyler Steel who once suited up with the BCHL Merritt Centennials.
The real rough stuff took place after the Havoc’s Jason Price fired a puck into the Huntsville bench striking a player:
