If you're only used to watching the National Hockey League, you're missing out on some of the best hockey North America has to offer from a rivalry standpoint. College Hockey is an entirely different animal and offers some of the best hits, skirmishes, and all-around talent any fan will experience.


Most recently the Michigan State Wolverines featuring top three projected Freshman Adam Fantilli played host to Interstate rival the University of Michigan Spartans.

During a play in the Spartans zone, Fantilli was involved in a play where eighteen minutes in penalties and two ejections, including Fantilli were assessed.


Fantilli is seen initially cross-checking Michigan State Junior Nash Nienhuis then skating away.

Nienhuis gets up and goes after him and all hell breaks loose.

State sophomore Tanner Kelly comes to the defense of Nienhuis pulling Fantilli‘s helmet off.

Whoever gets the opportunity to draft Fantilli is getting a tenacious player who appears to do whatever it takes to win the small battles and help his team get the two points.
