WHLers drop the mitts for spirited bout in cartoon uniforms

The regular season for juniors leagues around Canada and North America are winding down, with playoffs beginning within the next four or five weeks.

In the Western Hockey League, the playoff race is heating up and emotions have boiled over as those teams searching for a berth in the post-season are battling for their lives.

In a recent game between the Medicine Hat Tigers and the Regina Pats, the latter of whom sit outside the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, a fight occurred while the Pats were wearing uniforms from a famous cartoon show - SpongeBob.

The Regina Pats were wearing 'Patrick Star' jerseys and for those who aren't aware, he's a character from SpongeBob and to be fair, the uniforms turned out quite well.

Just over halfway through the second frame, with Medcine Hat up 2-1, Pats forward Jaxsin Vaughan dropped the mitts with Tigers defenceman Nate Corbet in what turned out to be quite a spirited bout. Vaughan landed the takedown in the tilt after roughly 30 seconds.

Check out the full tilt, along with the Patrick Star uniforms, in the video below!
