Major Canadian League Officially Bans Fighting for Upcoming Season
BY TJ TUCKER AUGUST 10, 2023 (4:21 PM)
Section 4 of the QMJHL's rules, which deals with fighting, now says anyone fighting will be immediately ejected from a game and will face supplementary discipline after that. The rules also apply to any members of a team who aren't players.
The league said this was coming several months ago following a request by the Quebec government to curb violence in the league, believing careers are being cut short and players are suffering life-long injuries after getting into fights. Of the three major junior leagues in Canada (QMJHL, OHL, WHL), the QMJHL had the lowest incidents of fighting the past few seasons.
