Hockey goalies, as a rule thumb, don't usually fight. You can blame it on the pads and the masks, the fact that most hockey goalies are supposed to be of even temperament (Tim Thomas and Ron Hextall don't count).

But something must've really set off the goalies of the QMJHL's Baie-Comeau Drakkar and the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. At the end of their playoff game not one, not two, but FOUR goalies decided to enter the bench-clearing brawl. The incident ended up getting 12 players suspended including all four goalies and two coaches, QMI reported.

“What we saw yesterday is not at all representative of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League,” league commissioner Gilles Courteau told the Canadian Press. “It is a deplorable and isolated incident that doesn’t have its place in hockey.” The series is now tied 2-2 and the team will be playing game 5 with their third-string goalies.
