Who Is The Mangler Anglestad? – Mel ‘The Mangler’ Anglestad is getting another shot at fame for his infamous fisticuffs ever since Jay Baruchel dropped his name in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. Baruchel told Kimmel that Anglestad had reached out and wanted to be in the Goon Movie sequel because the first movie was basically about his life.
Anglestad spent 16 years toiling in the minors but did play two games with the Washington Capitals and recorded a two-minute penalty. However in the lower ranks, the Saskatoon native easily racked up a couple thousand PIMS. He got his start in hockey playing in the SJHL with the Flin Flon Bombers where he recorded a shocking 473 PIMS!
One of his famous fights that Baruchel referenced was his scrap with Darcy Hordichuck who played over 500 games in the NHL with teams like Nashville, Florida, Vancouver and Edmonton. In fact they scrapped a couple of times and both battles were beauties as you can see by Round two below:
You have to love when these guys who give their heart and sould get another chance to live the glory days and for the Mangler, we look forward to seeing him in the movie?
