In an open letter to NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on February 6th, the League of Fans stated that the Ontario Hockey League “bans fighting and all blows to the head,” as does the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), the NCAA, and other hockey organizations. While the Ontario Hockey League has indeed banned “staged fights” at the beginning of games and periods, they have yet to completely ban fighting — despite outlawing contact to the head. The League of Fans apologizes for the error.
