Ahhhh 1970’s hockey. A time when pretty much everything was allowed and for good reason. Even though I didn’t live through it, the game was so much better back then. Alas, times have changed and while I don’t disagree with the safety of players, there’s one thing that should always remain…..hockey fights.
John “Moose” Wensink was from Maxville, Ontario and one arguably one of the meanest and craziest fighters of the time. Along with Stan Jonathan and Terry O’Reilly, you did not want to mess with the Bruins.
Apparently the Minnesota North Stars weren’t smart enough for that. Watch Wensink go crazy on Alex Pirus then challenge the entire Minnesota bench before the ensuing brawl.
