Corey Perry and Nik Ehlers drop the gloves and their teammates absolutely love it

Nothing like a middleweight scrap to fire up the boys!


In case you missed it last night, Montreal Canadiens forward Corey Perry dropped the gloves with... Nikolaj Ehlers of the Winnipeg Jets? You betcha!

Ehlers, the skilled Danish forward, had no issues going toe to toe with Perry despite giving up a couple inches and about 30 pounds to his competitor. And you know what? The kid hung in there just fine!

Even better though? Check out Ehlers' teammates reaction afterwards:

That's old time hockey, right there. You love to see it.
